Boudicca: Song & Lyrics

The famous Celtic Queen Boudicca fearlessly revolts against the Romans.

Song from Series 2 Episode 10.


Gonna cause a stink

Won’t be the first to blink

I’m not who you think

Don’t mess with me, I’m Boudicca!


My husband Presotagus died

He was a Celtic king.

I was his queen, so due to me

Was half of everything.


Roman law gave half to me

So half was what they got

‘Till their nasty soldiers came

And took the blessed lot.


Hey mister!

I say you got the wrong end of the stick.

His answer turned this sister

Into one angry chick!


No man, Roman’ll

Push around this woman

You won’t get far, with Boudicca.

Foeman, yeoman,

Smash the Roman foeman

All say yah! Yah! Boudicca!


I built a massive army, headed straight for the city

Beat ’em all with ease and like me, it wasn’t pretty.

Chopped ’em and hacked but what made their red blood curl.

Bad enough being beaten – but beaten by a girl?


Wacked ’em, smacked ’em, boy how we attacked ’em

Near and far, ha ha ha!

Flayed ’em, slayed ’em up and down parade ’em

Boudicca! Toughest by far!


Colchester, London, St. Albans

Everybody talk about dead Romans!


We marched on up the Roman road

That’s known as Watling Street.

They trapped us in the forest

Then thrashed us to our defeat.


By now you’d guessed I’m not the kind

Of girl to sit and cry.

Be sold a slave to Romans?

You know I’d rather die!


They tried to take me prisoner

So I led the Roman boys on.

Instead of giving in to them

I swallowed special poison!


Martyr, smarter, capturer, non-starter

This was our last hurrah!

Slaughtered, dismembered, our tribe always remembered

Boudicca! Superstar! Boudicca! Superstar!
