On Waltzing Matilda

She has been waltzing for more than a century of years
Matilda has outlived all of the waltzing old dears
Who have been waltzing since she was in her prime
They have long become victims of the father of time
Her old waltzing partner Banjo is long with the dead
But she will waltz into the decades ahead
She reminds me a little of ageless Danny Boy
A very long life he too seems to enjoy
He does remain young despite his lengthy life span
The boy who has never grown into a man
Danny though still called a boy his best days are long gone
But Waltzing Matilda she is waltzing on
And Banjo her old waltzing partner in his long rest lay
But she has refused for to call it a day.
