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.
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.
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!
