The Lyrics

An unhappy nagged man went where contractors throng,
brought bricks, a trowel, some cement quite slyly.
Was so mad at his wife, that his blood began to boil.
“She will be walled-in Matilda, said he.

Walled-in Matilda, walled-in Matilda;
she would be walled in Matilda quickly.
He drank up some sauce that’s infused with juniper oil.
“She will be walled-in Matilda, said he.

She’d not be dumbstruck, ’cause he gave her pills to yawn;
she’d take a nap with no reverie.
Into her she shoved down pills and didn’t gag.
She’d soon be walled-in Matilda. Finally!

Walled-in Matilda, walled-in Matilda;
she would be walled in Matilda quickly.
She drank way past drunk and was way too strung out to nag.
“She will be walled-in Matilda, said he.

Walled-in Matilda, walled-in Matilda;
she would be walled in Matilda quickly.
Her body was slumped; he hefted her like a full bag
down to be walled-in Matilda quickly.

Down to the cellar, where she’d be thoroughly dead,
he figured, after days just three.
But unknown to him—inside the vault a black cat ran…
Cat would join walled-in Matilda; he’d slinked in slyly.

Upward the cat ran and sprang atop her huge bouffant,
sitting there and glaring balefully.
Then his cries could be heard, just days after mortar was on.
He gave up walled-in Matilda with screams.

Walled-in Matilda, walled-in Matilda;
soon after, walled-in Matilda they see.
The cat had been heard by police who came in a throng.
Guy’s stretch for walled-in Matilda: 30.

I'm glad his horrific plan came unstuck JAB! And so glad it was one of our cute furry friends that spilled the beans. Even more impressive is that you know this iconic Aussie ballad at all! - 555

...sing rickety-rickety-tin! For a moment there I was a little scared that you were going to do something horrible to Roald Dahl's beloved character.

It's not just the ballad that's iconic: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Black_Cat_(short_story)

Ditto to Stuart's final comment! Good job with this one JAB :) 30 years? Not in the OS's home country. You get less for murder. Oh...

Well I'm certainly glad he got 30 years for attempted felinicide...
