Wasted and wounded And it ain't what the moon did I got what I paid for now See you tomorrow Hey Frank can I borrow A couple of bucks from you To go waltzing Matilda waltzing Matilda You'll go waltzing Matilda with me
I'm an innocent victim of a blinded alley And I'm tired of all these soldiers here No-one speaks English And everything's broken And my strength is soaking away To go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda You'll go a waltzing Malitda with me
Now the dogs they are barking and the taxi cab's parking A lot they can do for me I begged you to stab me You tore my shirt open And I'm down on my knees tonight
Old bushmills I staggered You buried the dagger Your silhouette window light To go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda You'll go a waltzing Matilda with me
Now I've lost my St. Christopher Now that I kissed her And the one-arm bandit knows And the maverick Chinaman with the cold-blooded sigh And the girls down by the striptease shows go Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda You'll go a waltzing Matilda with me
No I don't want your sympathy Fugitives say that the streets aren't for dreaming now Manslaughter dragnet and the ghost that sells memories Want a piece of the action anyhow Go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda You'll go waltzing Matilda with me
And you can ask any sailor And the keys from the jailor And the old men in wheelchairs know That Matilda's the defendant She killed about a hundred And she follows wherever you may go Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda You'll go waltzing Matilda with me
And it's a battered old suitcase in a hotel someplace And a wound that would never heal No prima donnas the perfume is on and old shirt that is stained with blood and whiskey And goodnight to the street-sweepers, The night watchmen flame-keepers And goodnight Matilda too Goodnight Matilda too.
