Wasted and wounded
I got what I paid for now
Hey Frank can I borrow
To go waltzing Matilda waltzing Matilda

of a blinded alley
No-one speaks English
And my strength is soaking away
You'll go a waltzing Matilda with me
Now the dogs they are barking
A lot they can do for me
You tore my shirt open
And I'm down on my knees tonight
You buried the dagger
To go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
Now I've lost my St. Christopher

And the maverick China man
And the girls down by the striptease shows go
You'll go a waltzing Matilda with me
Fugitives say
that the streets aren't for dreaming now
and the ghost that sells memories
Go waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
And you can ask any sailor

That Mathilda's the defendant
And she follows wherever you may go
You'll go waltzing Matilda with me
in a hotel someplace
And a wound that would never heal
and old shirt that is stained with blood and whiskey
The night watchmen flame-keepers
Goodnight Matilda too.
