hidden
Wasted and wounded
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 a-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

(* Repeat)

Now the dogs they are barking
And the taxi cab's parking
A lot they can do for me
I begged you to stab with 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

(* Repeat)

Now I've lost my St. Christopher
Now that I kissed her
And the one-armed bandit knows
And the maverick Chinaman
With the cold-blooded sigh
And the girls down by the striptease shows go

(* Repeat)

No I don't want your sympathy
Fugitives say that
The streets aren't for dreaming now
Manslaughter dragnets
And the ghosts that sell memories
Want a piece of the action anyhow

(* Repeat)

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

(* Repeat)

And it's battered old suitcase in a hotel someplace
And a wound that will never heal
No prima donnas the perfume is on
An old shirt that is stained with blood and whisky
And goodnight to the street-sweepers
The night watchmen flame-keepers
And goodnight Matilda...too
