Waltzing Matilda. (In Latin).


Dedicated to the God-Given Country of Australia
and the wonderful people therein,
who, in times past, welcomed me with open arms.

When the chips are down, and the going gets rough,
as long as the Aussies are with you,
you'll be OK.

"Fair Dinkum, Sport."

"She's Apples, Mate."





"Waltzing Matilda".
Available on YouTube at


"CARMEN VAGABUNDUM"
(WALTZING MATILDA).
(T.W.Melluish)

[To be sung to the tune of "Waltzing Matilda"] 


Tendit in fusis amnis erro lacubus
grato sub tegmine myrteti,
cecinitque tuens dum fervet igne caccabus
"quis comes ambiclitella mihi?"

Chorus:
Ambiclitella, ambiclitella,
tu comes ambiclitella mihi
cecinitque tuens 
dum fervet igne caccabus
"tu comes ambiclitella mihi"


Venit ovicula - vult sorbitiunculam,
corripit erro, exsultans vi,
et in peram ut condit, canit cantiunculam:
"tu comes ambiclitella mihi?

Chorus:
Ambiclitella, ambiclitella,
tu comes ambiclitella mihi
et in peram ut condit, 
canit cantiunculam:
"tu comes ambiclitella mihi"


Venit colonus, equitans agricola;
hunc comitantur tres viri.
"cuius in pera latet haec ovicula?"
tu comes ambiclitella mihi!"

Chorus:
Ambiclitella, ambiclitella,
tu comes ambiclitella mihi
"cuius in pera 
latet haec ovicula?"
"tu comes ambiclitella mihi!"


Praeceps sed erro ruit in voraginem,
se boat vivum nolle capi.
lacubusque canentem audias imaginem:
"tu comes ambiclitella mihi"

Chorus:
Ambiclitella, ambiclitella,
quis comes ambiclitella mihi?
lacubusque canentem 
audias imaginem:
"quis comes ambiclitella mihi?"

THE END.

    Thanks for giving this fine Latin canticle another airing.

    I wonder, however, whether we will soon need to add another verse concerning 'Cineres' (i.e. The Ashes) :-)
