Song 3: 'Boudicca!' (Backing)

Back at the end of the Iron Age
Wife of Prasutagus, fierce with rage
Leads the Iceni with angry shout
Wants to drive the Romans out
Tribal warrior, Celtic Queen
Fiercer than Romans had ever seen
BOUDICCA!

Metal-torc and bright-red hair
Tattooed skin and angry glare
Horses thundering, chariot-ride
Thousands of warriors by her side
Attacks three cities with sparks of fire
Burns them into a funeral-pyre
BOUDICCA!

[instrumental verse with body-percussion and percussion - to evoke iron, galloping horses, chariots, and war-shouts]

Back at the end of the Iron Age
Wife of Prasutagus, fierce with rage
Leads the Iceni with angry shout
Wants to drive the Romans out
Tribal warrior, Celtic Queen
Fiercer than Romans had ever seen
BOUDICCA!

Boudicca!
Boudicca!
Boudicca!
Boudicca!
BOUDICCA!
