once a jolly swagman camped by the billabong,
under the shade of a coolibah tree,
and he sang as he sat and waited by the billabong
who'll come a waltzing matilda with me

waltzing matilda, waltzing matilda
who'll come a waltzing matilda with me
and he sang as he sat and waited by the billabong
who'll come a waltzing matilda with me.

along comes a jambuck to drink up at the waterhole
up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee
and he said as he put the jumbuck in his tuckerbag
you'll come a waltzing matilda with me

waltzing matilda, waltzing matilda
who'lll come a waltzing matilda with me
and he sang as he sat and waited by the billabong
who'll come a waltzing matilda with me.

along comes a squatter, riding on a thoroughbred,
up steps the troopers, one, two, three.
"where's the jolly jumbuck you've got in your tuckerbag?
you'll come a waltzing matilda with me

waltzing matilda, waltzing matilda
who'll come a waltzing matilda with me
and he sang as he sat and waited by the billabong
who'll come a waltzing matilda with me.

well the swagman he up and jumped into the waterhole
dorwning himself by the coolibah tree
and his ghost may be heard as it sings in the billabong
who'll come a waltzing matilda with me.

waltzing matilda, waltzing matilda
who'll come a waltzing matilda with me
and he sang as he sat and waited by the billabong
who'll come a waltzing matilda with me.
