The rapacious Roman officer
raised taxes in our region,
just whistle for it, we told him,
we’re not afraid of your legion.

So we felt forced to revolt
against that ruthless occupier
near the town of Flevum
we routed the army of that liar.

At Baduhenna’s forest
we met them on the height,
defeated there the Romans
in a splendid glorious fight.

The enemy got reinforcements,
thirsty was he for revenge,
desired another battle,
furious by our challenge.

At Baduhenna’s behest
we seemingly fell back,
the bastard and his army,
was lured onto our track.

At Baduhenna’s forest
we met them on the height,
defeated there the Romans
in a splendid glorious fight.

Arrived at our Holy woods,
we stood and did not yield,
that mighty Roman army
was slain there on the field.

At Baduhenna’s forest
we met them on the height,
defeated there the Romans
in a splendid glorious fight.
