Waltzing Matilda whipped out her wallet
She took out four twenties 'cause she liked round figures
Oh, babe, I'm on fire and you know how I admire your
Although I'm sure you're certain, it's a rarity me flirtin'

Hey, baby, come on, let's slip away
Luscious and gorgeous, oh what a hunk of muscle
She creamed in her jeans as he picked up her means
And cascading slowly, he lifted her wholly
And despite people's derision
Sha-la-la-la, later on
And then sha-la-la-la-la, he entered her slowly
And then sha-la-la-la-la, he made love to her gently
And then sha-la-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la-la
You know, sha-la-la-la-la, sha-la-la-la-la

Hey, that*****'s not breathing
Of something or other, hey, man, you know what I mean
But you're the one who came here
I'm not being smart
And I'm not gonna wear my heart on my sleeve
And sometimes, man, they just don't act rational

Why don't you just slip
