We're getting a bit confused here. The ablative never ends with -um. Flavum is the accusative of the adjective flavus=yellow, golden...There's also the word Flevum, neutral,nominative/accusative/vocative which was a town in the region of Germania Inferior. Sorry, just had to get this straight:b The rest of the lyrics has nothing to do with latin.
