Waltzing Matilda

Waltzing Matilda” is Australia’s most widely known bush ballad, and has been described as the country’s “unofficial national anthem”.

Elderly_swagmanThe original lyrics were written in 1895 by Australian poet Banjo Paterson, and were first published as sheet music in 1903. Extensive folklore surrounds the song and the process of its creation, to the extent that the song has its own museum, the Waltzing Matilda Centrein Winton, Queensland, where Paterson wrote the song.

The song was first recorded in 1926 as performed by John Collinson and Russell Callow.
In 2008, this recording of “Waltzing Matilda” was added to the Sounds of Australia registry in the National Film and Sound Archive which says that there are more recordings of “Waltzing Matilda” than any other Australian song.

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
“Who’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda,
with me?”
Jednou jeden čipernej tulák tábořil
u stojatý vody ve stínu eukalyptu,
čekal, až mu začne vřít kotlík,
a přitom si zpíval:
„Kdo se mnou, holka, půjde na
vandr?“
 “Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
Who’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda,
with me?”
And he sang as he watched and
waited ’til his billy boiled
“Who’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda,
with me?”
 „Kamarádko na cesty,
kamarádko na cesty,
kdo se mnou, holka,
půjde na vandr?“
Čekal, až mu začne vřít kotlík,
a přitom si zpíval:
„Kdo se mnou, holka,
půjde na vandr?“
Down came a jumbuck to drink
from the billabong
Up jumped the swagman and
grabbed him with glee
And he sang as he stowed that
jumbuck in his tucker bag
“You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda,
with me”
 Přiběhla ovce a začala pít z řeky,
tulák vyskočil a nadšeně po ní
chmátnul.
A když ji cpal do svýho rance,
zpíval si:
„Pojď, holka, je čas vyrazit.“
 “Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda,
with me”
And he sang as he stowed that
jumbuck in his tucker bag
“You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda,
with me”
 „Kamarádko na cesty,
kamarádko na cesty, pojď, holka,
je čas vyrazit.“
Cpal ji do rance a přitom si zpíval:
„Pojď, holka, je čas vyrazit.“
 Up rode the squatter, mounted on
his thoroughbred
Down came 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”
 Vtom jede farmář, tyčí se na svým
plnokrevníku,
a za ním četníci, jeden, dva, tři.
„Kde máš tu čipernou ovečku,
co sis strkal do rance?“
„Pojď, holka, je čas vyrazit.“
 “Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda,
with me”
“Where’s that jolly jumbuck you’ve
got in your tucker bag?”
“You’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda,
with me”
 „Kamarádko na cesty,
kamarádko na cesty,
pojď, holka, je čas vyrazit.“
„No kdepak máš tu ovečku,
co sis strkal do rance?“
„Pojď, holka, je čas vyrazit.“
Up jumped the swagman, leapt
into the billabong “You’ll never
catch me alive,” said he And his
ghost may be heard as you pass
by the billabong
“Who’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda,
with me?”
 Tulák se vymrštil a skočil do řeky
se slovy: „Živýho mě nedostanete.“
A ještě teď tam můžete slyšet,
jak jeho duch zpívá:
„Pojď, holka, je čas vyrazit.“
“Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda
Who’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda,
with me?”
And his ghost may be heard as you
pass by the billabong
“Who’ll come a-Waltzing Matilda,
with me?”
„Kamarádko na cesty kamarádko
na cesty, kdo se mnou, holka,
půjde na vandr?“
A ještě teď tam můžete slyšet,
jak jeho duch zpívá:
„Kdo se mnou, holka, půjde
na vandr?“
