Extreme extremely fast they came grazing on their bikes
Extreme extremely fast, 'cause they heard there was a race, a motorcross
They both never drove slow on their bikes
They thought that was only wasting time
Bertus on his Norton and Tinus on his BSA
To the motorcross on the Hengelo sand
The chicken and the girls were driven on the side
Bertus on his Norton and Tinus on his BSA

Oehoe oehoerend hard kwamen zi-j doar angescheurd
Oehoe oehoerend hard, want zi-j hadden van de motorcross geheurd
Langzaam rij-en dat deejen ze nooit
Dat vonden zi-j toch moar tied verknooid
Bertus op zien Norton en Tinus op de BSA
Noar de motorcross op 't Hengelse zand
De hoender en de vrouwluu stoaven aan de kant
Bertus op zien Norton en Tinus op de BSA

They went extreme, extreme, extreme, extreme, extreme, extremely fast
They went extreme, extreme, extreme, extreme, extreme, extremely fast

Zi-j gingen oe, oehoe oehoe, oehoe oehoe oehoerend hard
Zi-j gingen oe, oehoe oehoe, oehoe oehoe oehoerend hard

Extreme extremely fast they came grazing back home after the cross
Extreme extremely fast, 'cause they would be much sooner home
They had had cracking bursting fun all day
They both were rather tipsy, but just only slight
Bertus on his Norton and Tinus on his BSA
About danger or risk they never had thought
They were the road kings and they thought they could do everything
Bertus on his Norton and Tinus on his BSA

Oehoe oehoerend hard scheurden zi-j noa de cross noar huus
Oehoe oehoerend hard, want dan waren zi-j eerder thuus
Zi-j hadden alderbastend gein gehad
Zi-j waren allebei een heel klein betjen zat
Bertus op zien Norton en Tinus op de BSA
An 't gevoar hadden zi-j nog nooit gedach
Zie waren koning op de weg en dachten alles mag
Bertus op zien Norton en Tinus op de BSA

They went extreme, extreme, extreme, extreme, extreme, extremely fast
They went extreme, extreme, extreme, extreme, extreme, extremely fast

Zi-j gingen oe, oehoe oehoe, oehoe oehoe oehoerend hard

But then as always the rushing will come to an end
Due to a drunk fellow who's not knowing what's the speed of his bike
Bertus drove the bike and Tinus followed just right behind
Everyone would say: "Oh these guys, we won't hear of again"
They never went, never no, crazy fast again
They never went, never no, crazy fast again

Moar zoas altied kum an dat gejakker een end
Deur een zatte kerel die de snelheid van een motor niet kent
Bertus reej derop en Tinus kwam der vlak achteran
Iedereen die zei: "Van die leu heur ie nooit meer wat van"
Zie gingen nooit, nee, nee nooit, nooit meer oerend hard
Zie gingen nooit, nee, nee nooit, nooit meer oerend hard

But we will go extreme, extreme, extreme, extreme, extremely fast
But we will go extreme, extreme, extreme, extreme, extremely fast

Moar wi-j goat oe, oehoe oehoe, oehoe oehoe oehoerend hard
Moar wi-j goat oe, oehoe oehoe, oehoe oehoe oehoerend hard


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch song translated English translation

And we all go extreme, extreme, extreme, extreme, extremely fast
And we all go extreme, extreme, extreme, extreme, extremely fast
And we all go extreme, extreme

En wi-j goat oe, oehoe oehoe, oehoe oehoe oehoerend hard
En wi-j goat oe, oehoe oehoe, oehoe oehoe oehoerend hard
En wi-j goat oe, oehoe oehoe

Normaal ('Normal', 1974-2015) was a Dutch rockband that sang in a Dutch dialect, the 'Achterhoeks' (officially 'Nedersaksisch': Low Saxon). This is a region language in the province of Gelderland, in the east of the Netherlands. Singer and guitarist of the band was Bennie Jolink. Other long-lasting members were Jan Manschot (drums) and Ferdi Joly (guitar).

During their first big show in Lochem (in the Achterhoek) in 1975, the rock band started to sing in the regional language. This was completely new and an instant success. Two years later they had a big national hit with above song 'Crazy fast' (or 'Extremely fast')/'Oerend hard' (1977). This is considered to be the beginning of the dialect pop and the farmer's rock.

The song was in the National Hit Parade Top 40 for 11 weeks, with place 2 as highest position. Rumor goes, that the single in fact had achieved the number 1 position, but radio managers didn't grant it, because of demolitions during and after several concerts. The song is still every year voted into the Top 2000 (traditionally broadcasted on the radio the last week of the year).

In 40 years Normaal released over 40 records. They called their fans 'super farmers'/'superboeren', they called their tours 'campaigns'/'veldtochten', during concerts beer was spouted with fire hoses and their favorite expression was 'höken', which means as much as having fun, partying, blowing your mind.

The song 'Oerend hard' is about two boys going to the motor cross - but on the way back they have a deadly crash due to alcohol. Motorbike riding was a favorite activity of several band members. In fact front man Benny Jolink had a few motorbike crashes himself during his life, one (crashing into a ravine in Morocco) almost costing him his life - similar to his own songtext.
