Repetition
{where and why?}
where: At the end of every verse
Why? to lead it onto the chorus

Where: chorus
why? because choruses have to have the same words.
Rhythm
Where?
which line?
Narrative poem

How i can tell that this is a narrative poem:

Because narrative poetry is a form of poetry that tells a story, often using voices of a narrator and characters, the entire story is usually written in metered verse. Narrative poems also do not have to follow a rhythm patterns.
Oh there once was a swagman camped in the billabong
Under the shade of a Coolabah tree
And he sang as he looked at the old billy boiling
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

Who'll come a waltzing Matilda my darling
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
Waltzing Matilda leading a tucker bag
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

Down came a jumbuck to drink at the water hole
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him in glee
And he said as he put him away in the tucker bag
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

You'll come a waltzing Matilda my darling
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
Waltzing Matilda leading a tucker bag
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

Down came the squatter a riding on his thoroughbred
Down came policemen one, two and three
Where is the jumbuck you've got in the tucker bag
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

You'll come a waltzing Matilda my darling
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
Waltzing Matilda leading a tucker bag
You'll come a waltzing Matilda with me

But the swagman he ups and he jumps in the water hole
Drowning himself by the Coolabah tree
And his ghost can be heard as it sings in the billabong
Who'll come a waltzing Matilda with me
Metaphors- but the swag man he ups and he jumps in the water hole.
up jumped the swag man and grabbed him in glee.
