OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Pretty corner left allemande, turn your own with your right hand
Men star left in the middle, go once around, 'til you meet Matilda
Dosado your pretty thing, come on and weave that ring
Keep in the shade 'til you meet your maid, then box the gnat, boy
Girls promenade inside the set, all the way home and find your pet
Swing your own about once around, and promenade Matilda
Matilda, Matilda
Matilda, she take me money and run Venzuela


FIGURE    A1, corner progression

4 ladies chain 3/4 around, turn those girls with an arm around
Head couples right & left thru across from you and turn those ladies
Cross trail thru, you two, round the outside, go round two
Come to the middle and then star thru, and split that new two
Go round one, son of a gun, left square thru in the tropical sun
Count 4 hands to a left allemande and you come back one, man, promenade
Matilda, Matilda
Matilda, she take me money and run Venzuela

Hey! Matilda, Matilda, Matilda
She take me money and run Venezuela
Once again now!
Matilda, Matilda, Matilda
She take me money and run Venezuela

Five hundred dollars, friends, I lost:
Woman even sell me cat and horse!
Heya! Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela

Everybody!
(Matilda,) Sing out the chorus
(Matilda,) Sing a little louder
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela

Once again now!
(Matilda,) Going 'round the corner
(Matilda,) Sing out the chorus
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela

Well, the money was to buy me house an' lan'
Then she got a serious plan
A-hey, ah!
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela

Everybody!
(Matilda, Matilda, Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela.)
Once again now!
(Matilda,) Going 'round the corner
(Matilda, Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela.)

Well, the money was just inside me bed
Stuck up in a pillow beneath me head
Don't you know,
Matilda, she found me money and...

Everybody...
(Matilda, Matilda, Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela.)
Once again now!
(Matilda,) Hooma locka chimba
(Matilda,) Bring me little water
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela

Women over forty?
(Matilda, Matilda, Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela.)
Everybody!
(Matilda,) Goin' round the corner
(Matilda,) Bring me little water
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela

Well, me friends, never to love again
All me money gone in vain!
Uh, heya...
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela

Everybody!
(Matilda, Matilda,) Oom, ba-locka-chimba!
(Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela.)

Sing a little softer!
(Matilda, Matilda, Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela.)
EVERYBODY!
(Matilda, Matilda,) Sing out the chorus!
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela!

Lyrics by Norm Span; Harry Thomas.
