Count de Marchant et d‘Ansembourg

Count de Marchant et d‘Ansembourg,
Was always pro-german and therefore he went
In ‘14 already to Mofrika
And he fought without unequalled
Even then for German interests,
A hero hard to replace,
He felt German, was Dutch,
But his name was purely French,
It was indeed quite a feat
With de Marchant et d‘Ansembourg.

But Germany went down to the floor
And de Marchant et d’Ansembourg
Swiftly and quickly returned
To the Netherlands
And at first, he seemed to be peeved,
He stayed put for a while,
But later joined the NSB,
And he strongly participated in it.
And adressed to citizen and farmer,
Count de Marchant et d‘Ansembourg.

Count de Marchant et d‘Ansembourg,
Who acted so bravely and sturdy,
Promised this, promised that
And he always boasted
That one would soon witness
How NSBers provided leadership
And bringing new prosperity to the country,
He gave his word as a guarantee,
Yes, he promised and he swore,
Count de Marchant et d‘Ansembourg.

Count de Marchant et d‘Ansembourg,
Finally took the helm,
The Germans helped him with it,
And d‘Ansembourg was very happy,
As commissioner of Limburg province,
He thinks it‘s all settled now,
But now he realized:
He has speculated wrongly
And sadly thinks Count d‘Ansembourg,
Death is lurking for me.
