Here are all the words to that song and drawings to go with it. I grew up knowing only part of it. Now I know the rest. Sad story but reflects what can happen to a poor old man who takes a sheep to feed himself. He is not met with compassion and jumps in the billabong.

The used copy I received is is good condition, but it smells OLD! The pictures are not as nice as I would like, and the lyrics are a little different than I was expecting.

great poetry, good images, but too condensed.
It was a former library book from a city I recognized, which made me laugh.

Here i am again, writing a 250 word review, for a book that likely has less words than that. A 25 page popup book illustrating the famous Australian song 'Waltzing Matilda'. This song is the most covered Australian song ever. This song was written in 1895, and even today is still popular with all ages. The popup book was a fun way to bring the song to life, and to introduce the song further to children in a fun singsong way. Another book read to me over skype by my friend.

In case you don't know the lyrics:
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.

This version of the poem is wonderfully illustrated by Desmond Digby. The colours and light are very evocative of when I was a small boy living in Australia. The pictures bring to life the aloneness and small pleasures of the swagman, his panic as the authorities decide (probably unjustly) to crack down on him, and even the fear of the 'jumbuck' (sheep) as the swagman "grabs him in glee". I sing this to my ten-month-old, and he absolutely loves it - it's a nice song, more involving than a shorter rhyme or lullaby.

The author and illustrator do a fine job of making this well-known Australian ballad come to life for the reader. The glossary which provides definitions for the Australian terms is also very helpful. I was very surprised to see that the reading level for this title is listed as baby-preschool. I have frequently used this book when teaching the ballad to third or fourth grade students. The many unfamiliar terms and the outcome of the story (the swagman commits suicide to avoid jail) would seem to make the book inappropriate for younger readers.
I recommend this for elementary music teachers to use with their upper elementary students when they are learning the song.
