O Fortuna
Velut luna
Statu variabilis
Semper crescis
Aut decrescis
Vita detestabilis
Nunc obdurat
Et tunc curat
Ludo mentis aciem
Egestatem
Potestatem
Dissolvit ut glaciem

Sors immanis
Et inanis
Rota tu volubilis
Status malus
Vana salus
Semper dissolubilis
Obumbrata
Et velata
Michi quoque niteris
Nunc per ludum
Dorsum nudum
Fero tui sceleris

Sors salutis
Et virtutis
Michi nunc contraria
Est affectus
Et defectus
Semper in angaria
Hac in hora
Sine mora
Corde pulsum tangite
Quod per sortem
Sternit fortem
Mecum omnes plangite

Fortune plango vulnera
Stillantibus ocellis
Quod sua michi munera
Subtrahit rebellis
Verum est, quod legitur
Fronte capillata
Sed plerumque sequitur
Occasio calvata
In Fortune solio
Sederam elatus
Prosperitatis vario
Flore coronatus
Quicquid enim florui
Felix et beatus
Nunc a summo corrui
Gloria privatus
Fortune rota volvitur
Descendo minoratus
Alter in altum tollitur
Nimis exaltatus
Rex sedet in vertice
Caveat ruinam!
Nam sub axe legimus
Hecubam reginam
This song is from the album "Carmina Burana".
