Waltzing Matilda

LOL!! Never heard of that but it sounds funny...reminds of something in Spanish that I guess it would only make sense to me (inside joke)

Waltzing Matilda is, briefly, a song about a tramp who camps by a creek and steals a sheep ...

Some Australians consider it to be their "unofficial" national anthem

Waltzing Matilda
'Banjo' (A.B.) Patterson, c. 1890

Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong
Under the shade of a coolibah tree
And he sang as he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled
You'll come a-waltzing matilda with me

Waltzing matilda, waltzing matilda You'll come a waltzing matilda with me And he sang as he watched and waited 'til his billy boiled You'll come a-waltzing matilda with me

Down came a jumbuck to dri-ink at that billabong
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee
And he sang as he stuffed that jumbuck in his tucker-bag
You'll come a-waltzing matilda with me

Up rode the squatter, mounted on his thoroughbred
Up rode the troopers, one, two, three
"Where's that jolly jumbuck you've got in your tucker-bag?"
You'll come a-waltzing matilda with me

Up jumped the swagman and sprang into that billabong
"You'll never take me alive!", said he
And his ghost may be heard as you pa-ass by that billabong
You'll come a-waltzing matilda with me

Anne,

Waltzing Matilda is the UN-official national anthem of Australia. You have probably heard it and just don't realize it yet.

Can you call my cell phone and sing the song? I may even get freaky and save it so I can listen to your voice...you know...just because
But dont get too close to me, I bite... (oh yes, I should have been that in my secret life thread).

Can you stand on your head and drink water at the same time?

If I can, would you call and sing?
