We’re coming from Magusjaz’ land,
sure-handedness is our brand.

Batavians we are,
our specialty is war
the emperor we guard
we live short and die hard.

We’re coming from Magusjaz’ land,
sure-handedness is our brand.

Maguzjaz is our god
he is with us abroad
in Britain and in Rome,
and in Batavia our home.

We’re coming from Magusjaz’ land,
sure-handedness is our brand.

Everywhere at the frontier,
where Batavians appear,
and in the battle interfere
the enemies soon disappear.

We’re coming from Magusjaz’ land,
sure-handedness is our brand.

We are a hundred horse,
well known for our force
by Attile the Hun
the slavic souvereign.

Against a high reward,
we are his private guard,
on our oath he trusts,
on that he’s not biased.

We’re coming from Magusjaz’ land,
sure-handedness is our brand.

We’re coming from Magusjaz’ land,
sure-handedness is our brand.
