England Rugby Songs - Check out our versions of Waltzing Matilda, posted by Unofficial England Rugby Union fans on their rugby forum. Once the English forwards were camped by the 22  Listening to the fans singing

Once the English forwards were camped by the 22

Listening to the fans singing “god save YOUR queen”

And they sang as they watched and waited till young Johnny dropped a goal

“You’ll always be convicts and you will never be free”



Waltzing with Johnny, waltzing with Johnny, Johnny’s going  waltzing with me


And they sang as they watched the Wallabies start a crying

“All our cups have gone over the sea “

Down came the rolling maul to score under the goal posts

Up jumped up Woodward and danced with glee

And they sang as they watched young Johnny take the extras

“You’ll be swinging Low with me”



Waltzing with Johnny, waltzing with Johnny, Johnny’s going waltzing with me



Up jumped the lineout, carried by the forwards

Johnny took the penalties, one, two, three

What’s that golden trophy you’ve got in your locker room?

You’d better give that William Webb Ellis cup to me



Waltzing with Johnny, waltzing with Johnny, the cups coming waltzing with  Jonny and me

and another version here .......

To the tune of Waltzing Matilda .......


Once a jolly Johnno camped by a billabong

Under the shade of an old oak tree

And he sang as watched and waited till his kettle boiled

I'm going to ta-ake your trophy with me!

I'm going to take your, I'm going to take your, I'm going to ta-ake your trophy with me. And he sang as he watched and waited till his kettle boiled I'm going to ta-ake your trophy with me


Down came an Aussie to dri-ink at that billabong

Up jumped our Johnno and grabbed him with glee

And he sang as he stuffed[sic] that Aussie in his tucker back

I'm going to ta-ake your trophy with me


I'm going to take your, I'm going to take your, I'm going to ta-ake your trophy with me. And he sang as he watched and waited till his kettle boiled I'm going to ta-ake your trophy with me

squashing matilda

and will bring the world cup home at last
who'll come a squashing matilda next week

and again,

England's Jonny Wilko
Stood by his kicking tee
Near to the posts of the beaten Wallabies
And he stood and he watched and he waited till it crossed the bar
That's another penalty and 3 points to me

Scoring for England
Scoring for England
Who'll come a scoring for England with me
And he stood and he watched and he waited till it crossed the bar
Who'll come a scoring for England with me

*******************

Sing to the tune of "Yellow Submarine"

In the town where I was born,
there lived a man, who was a thief
And he told me of his life,
stealing bread and shagging sheep.
So they put him in the nick,
and then a magistrate he went to see
He said "put him on a ship, to the convict colony".

You all live in a convict colony, a convict colony, a convict colony.
You all live in a convict colony, a convict colony convict colony
