Carl Orff — Carmina Burana — O for­tuna played by Royal Phil­har­monic Orches­tra (with lyrics)

 

 

O For­tune,
like the moon
you are change­able,
always wax­ing
or wan­ing;
hate­ful life
first oppresses
and then soothes
as fancy takes it;
poverty
and power
it melts them like ice.

Fate — mon­strous
and empty,
you whirling wheel,
stand malev­o­lent,
well-being is vain
and always fades to noth­ing,
shad­owed
and veiled
you plague me too;
now through trick­ery,
I bring my bare back
to your vil­lainy.

Fate, in health
and in virtue,
is against me,
dri­ven on
and weighted down,
always enslaved.
So at this hour
with­out delay
pluck the vibrat­ing string;
since Fate
strikes down the strong man,
every­one weep with me!
