Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic, corner progression

Bow to partner, then turn and bow to corner
All join hands and circle to the left all the way around and back to home position
All circle to the right the other way round to home position and sing
Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
All men swing your corner lady then put her on your right (new partner)
All promenade round the set to home and sing as you
Watch and wait until the Billy boils
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head couples (1 & 3) promenade around the outside of the square
Passing behind the side couples (2 & 4), and going all the way around
and back to home position.

While the head couples are promenading the side couples walk forward
to face each other, join hands to form a four person ring, then
Circle left exactly one time around, then back away from each other to
original home position

All join hands and circle left, all the way around the set (square) and
Sing Waltzing Matilda, waltzing Matilda
All men swing your corner lady then put her on your right (new partner)
All promenade round the set to home and sing as you
Watch and wait until the Billy boils
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me

Waltzing Matilda Lyrics ID: 474

Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong,
Under the shade of a coolibah-tree,
And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled,
"Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?
Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda,
Who'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me?"
And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled,
"Who'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.
And 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."
And he sang as he shoved that jumbuck in his tucker-bag,
"You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me."

Up rode a squatter, mounted on his thoroughbred;
Down came the troopers, one, two, three:
"Who's that 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.
Who'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 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!"
And his ghost may be heard as you pass by that billabong,
"You'll come a-waltzing Matilda with me!"

Lyrics by Andrew Barton (Banjo) Paterson.
