The song, Matilda
by: Soca Freak

King Radio (stage name, Norman Span) recorded Matilda (Mathilda) in the 1930s.

Harry Belafonte in 1953.

Jimmy Soul recorded a version of the song in 1962 as Twistin Matilda. (She took the money and ran off to Las Vegas.)

Allen Sherman recorded a variation of song in 1962.

Hope this helps.
