Waltzing Matilda whipped out her wallet the sexy boy smiled in dismay She took out four twenties 'cause she liked round figures everybody's queen for a day Oh, babe, I'm on fire and you know I admire your body why don't we slip away Although I'm sure you're certain it's a rarity me flirtin' sha la la la la, this way Oh, sha la la la la sha la la la la hey, baby, come on let's slip away <♪> Luscious and gorgeous oh what a humpin' muscle call out the national guard She creamed in her jeans as he picked up her knees from off of the formica topped bar And cascading slowly he lifted her wholly and boldly out of this world And despite people's derision proved to be more than diversion sha la la la la, later on And then sha la la la la he entered her slowly and showed her where he was coming from And then sha la la la la he made love to her gently it was like she'd never ever come And then sha la la la la sha la la la la when the sun rose and he made to leave You know, sha la la la la sha la la la la neither one regretted a thing <♪> Hey, that cunt's not breathing I think she's had too much of something or other, hey, man you know what I mean? I don't mean to scare you but you're the one who came here and you're the one who's gotta take her when you leave I'm not being smart or trying to be cold on my part and I'm not gonna wear my heart on my sleeve But you know people get all emotional and sometimes, man they just don't act rational you know they think they're just on TV Sha la la la, man why don't you just slip her away You know I'm glad that we met man it really was nice talking and I really wish that there was a little more time to speak But you know it could be a hassle trying to explain this all to a police officer about how it was that your old lady got herself stiffed And it's not like we could help but there wasn't nothing no one could do and if there was man you know I would have been the first But when someone turns that blue well, it's a universal truth and then you just know that bitch will never fuck again By the way that's really some bad shit that you came to our place with but you ought to be more careful around the little girls It's either the best or it's the worst and since I don't have to choose I guess I won't and I know this ain't no way to treat a guest But why don't you grab your old lady by the feet and just lay her out in the darkest street and by morning she's just another hit and run. You know, some people got no choice and they can never find a voice to talk with that they can even call their own So the first thing that they see that allows them the right to be why they follow it, you know it's called bad luck <♪> Believe me (man) that's just a lie it's a lie she tells her friends 'cause the real song the real song that she won't even admit to herself [is] the beat in her heart. It's a song lots of people know. It's a painful song but I wrote a sad truth but alas for sad songs a painful wish. But wishin' won't make it so, Joe With a pretty kiss for a pretty face can't have its way Y'know tramps like us we were born to pay. Love has gone away and there's no one here now And there's nothing left to say but, oh, how I miss him, baby Oh, baby come on and slip away come on, baby why don't you slip away Love is gone away took the rings off my fingers And there's nothing left to say but, oh how oh how I need him, baby Come on, baby I need you baby oh, please don't slip away I need your loving so bad, babe please don't slip away
