Waltzing the tilde ~

Swagman OH! There once was a swagman plugged in his portable
Under the shade of a Coolabah tree
And he sang as he looked at his home page loading,
"Who'll come a-waltzing the tilde with me?"

    Who'll come a-waltzing the tilde, my darling,
    Who'll come a-waltzing the tilde with me?
    Waltzing the tilde and filling the <BODY> tag
    Who'll come a-waltzing the tilde with me?

Up came a hard book in an Alta Vista search,
Yes clicked the swagman, downloading with glee
And he sang as he filed it away in his laptop bag
You'll come a-waltzing the tilde with me?

Down came the virus a-riding his hypertext
Down came the Java code-one, two and three.
Whose is the hard book you've got in the laptop bag
You'll come a-waltzing the tilde with me?

But swagman, he up and he unplugged his 28k
Stranding himself by the Coolabah tree
And his host may be heard as it sings in the Billabong
You'll come a-waltzing the tilde with me?

with apologies to Banjo Paterson's Waltzing Matilda
