Oh there once was a swagman camped in the billabongUnder the shade of a Coolibah treeAnd he sang as he looked at the old billy boilingWho'll come a waltzing Matilda with meWho'll come a waltzing Matilda my darlingWho'll come a waltzing Matilda with meWaltzing Matilda leading a tucker bagWho'll come a waltzing Matilda with meDown came a jumbuck to drink at the water holeUp jumped the swagman and grabbed him in gleeAnd he said as he put him away in the tucker bagYou'll come a waltzing Matilda with meYou'll come a waltzing Matilda my darlingYou'll come a waltzing Matilda with meWaltzing Matilda leading a tucker bagYou'll come a waltzing Matilda with meDown came the squatter a riding on his thoroughbredDown came policemen one, two and threeWhere is the jumbuck you've got in the tucker bagYou'll come a waltzing Matilda with meYou'll come a waltzing Matilda my darlingYou'll come a waltzing Matilda with meWaltzing Matilda leading a tucker bagYou'll come a waltzing Matilda with meBut the swagman he ups and he jumps in the water holeDrowning himself by the Coolibah treeAnd his ghost can be heard as it sings in the billabongWho'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
