Verse:
Once a jol -ly swag - man camp - ed by a bil - la - bong,
Un - der the shade of a cool - i - bah tree,
And he sang as he watched and wait - ed 'till his bil - ly boiled,
'You'll come a waltz - ing Ma - til - da with me!'
 
Down came a jump - buck to drink at the bil - la - bong,
Up jumped the swag - man and grabed him with glee.
And he sang as he stowed that jump - buck in his tuck - er bag,
'You'll come a waltz - ing Ma - til - da with me!'
 
Chorus:
Waltz - ing Ma - til - da, Waltz - ing Ma - til - da,
You'll come a waltz - ing Ma - til - da with me,
And he sang as he watched and wait - ed 'till his bil - ly boiled,
'You'll come a waltz - ing Ma - til - da with me!'
