Matilda Matilda

Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela
Five hundred dollars was the cost
It was to buy a cart and horse
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela

Everybody - Matilda Matilda
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela
Once again now ' Matilda Matilda
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela

Well, the money was just inside me bed
Stuck in the pillow beneath me head
Don't you know that
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela

Everybody - Matilda Matilda
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela
From the corner - Matilda Matilda
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela

Well, me friends I'm never gonna love again
All the money gone in vain
Matilda, she grabbed me money and run Venezuela
She's a grabber!

Matilda Matilda,
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela

Once again now
Matilda Matilda
Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela
For the last time
Matilda Matilda, she take me money and run Venezuela
