Complete title: Triomfantelijk Lied Van De Zilvervloot, also known as Piet Hein. Amsterdammers Viotta and Heije were both doctor and poet. Viotta promoted on the human voice. They also cowrote Sint Nicolaas, better known as Zie De Maan Schijnt Door De Bomen (1843).
Piet Hein defeated the Spanish armada, seizing large amounts of silver and gold. When Ajax and Feyenoord started defeating Spanish top teams Real Madrid and FC Barcelona in the early seventies, Dutch football supporters had no other choice for a matching theme song.
