    I gotta start reading my own links. According to Wiki, Ali Mills is part Irish, and her great uncle Val McGuinness wrote “Waltzing Matilda.”

    Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong

    Under the shade of a coolibah tree, 

    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

    He sang as he watched and waited ’til his billy boiled,
    
you’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me

    Down came a jumbuck to drink at the billabong, 

    Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee,
    
he sang as he shoved that jumbuck in his tucker bag,
    
you’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me

    Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
    
you’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me
    
he sang as he shoved 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, 

    With the jolly jumbuck you’ve got in your tucker bag?
    
You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me.



    Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda

    You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me

    With the jolly jumbuck you’ve got in your tucker bag?
    You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, you scoundrel with me.



    Up jumped the swagman and sprang into the billabong, 

    You’ll never catch me alive, said he, 

    And his ghost may be heard as you pass by that billabong,
    
you’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me.



    Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda

    You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me
    
his ghost may be heard as you pass by that billabong, 

    You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me.

    Oh, you’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me.
