Relevant Verse:
NL:

Maar daar is het Kapelleke
En ik zie de watertoren staan
Weg is de pijn bij ’t Antoniusplein
De finish komt er aan
Gedragen door muziek
en het enthousiast publiek
De laatste meters dan heb ik ’t gedaan

EN:
But there it is Kapelleke
And I see the wate tower
Gone is the pain at ' t Antoniusplein
The finish is coming
Carried by music
and the enthusiastic audience
The last meters then I did it
