Hey! Matilda, Matilda, Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela
Once again now
Matilda, Matilda, Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela
Five hundred dollars, friends, I lost:
Woman even sell me cat and horse
Heya! Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela
Everybody
(Matilda,) Sing out the chorus
(Matilda,) Sing a little louder
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela
Once again now
(Matilda,) Going 'round the corner
(Matilda,) Sing out the chorus
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela
Well, the money was to buy me house an' lan'
Then she got a serious plan
A-hey, ah
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela
Everybody
(Matilda

Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela)
Once again now
(Matilda,) Going 'round the corner

Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela)
Well, the money was just inside me bed
Stuck up in a pillow beneath me head
Don't you know
Matilda, she found me money and...
Everybody...
(Matilda
Matilda
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela)
Once again now
(Matilda,) Hooma locka chimba
(Matilda,) Bring me little water
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela
Women over forty?

Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela)
Everybody
(Matilda,) Goin' round the corner
(Matilda,) Bring me little water
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela
Well, me friends, never to love again
All me money gone in vain
Uh, heya...
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela
Everybody
(Matilda

Sing a little softer
