    I have to say that THIS ONE is older and better. And the best bits of this video were taken from it.

    (continued)
    Sors salutis (Fate is against me)
    et virtutis (in health)
    michi nunc contraria, (and virtue)
    est affectus (driven on)
    et defectus (and weighted down)
    semper in angaria. (always enslaved.)
    Hac in hora (So at this hour)
    sine mora (without delay)
    corde pulsum tangite; (pluck the vibrating strings;)
    quod per sortem (since Fate)
    sternit fortem, (strikes down the string)
    mecum omnes plangite! (everyone weep with me!)

    Real Lyrics for Comparison

    O Fortuna (O Fortune)
    velut luna (like the moon)
    statu variabilis (you are changeable)
    semper crescis (ever waxing)
    aut decrescis; (and waning;)
    vita detestabilis (hateful life)
    nunc obdurat (first oppresses)
    et tunc curat (and then soothes)
    ludo mentis aciem, (as fancy takes it)
    egestatem, (poverty)
    potestatem (and power)
    dissolvit ut glaciem. (it melts them like ice.)

    Sors immanis (Fate - monstrous)
    et inanis, (and empty)
    rota tu volubilis, (you whirling wheel)
    status malus, (you are malevolent)
    vana salus (well-being is vain)
    semper dissolubilis, (and always fades to nothing)
    obumbrata (shadowed)
    et velata (and veiled)
    michi quoque niteris; (you plague me too;)
    nunc per ludum (now through the game)
    dorsum nudum (I bring my bare back)
    fero tui sceleris. (to your villainy.)

    O Fortune, like the moon you are changeable ever waxing and 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 you are malevolent well-being is vain and always fades to nothing shadowed and veiled you plague me too; now through the game I bring my bare back to your villainy.

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

    Fortune Plango Vulnera-
    Fortune plango vulnera stillantibus ocellis quod sua mihi munera subtrahit rebellis. Verum est, quod legitur, fronte capillata, sed plerumque sequitur Occasio calvata.

    In Fortune solio sederam elatus, prosperitatis vario flore coronatus; quisquid 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.

    The Cruel cuts of fate.
    I bemoan the wounds of Fortune with weeping eyes, for the gifts she made me she perversely takes away. It is written in truth, that she has a fine head of hair, but, when it comes to seizing an opportunity she is bald.

    On Fortune`s throne I used to sit raised up, crowned with the multi-coloured flowers of prosperity; though I may have flourished happy and blessed, now I fall from the peak deprived of glory.

    The wheel of Fortune turns; I go down, demeaned; another is raised up; far too high up sits the king at the summit - let him fear ruin! for under the axis is written Queen Hecuba.

    Anyoe who has not owned this work by Carl Orff, I suggest you obtain one. It`s a masterpeice.

    I`d suggest the 1990 version with Ormanday, the Philadelphia Orchestra and Janice Harsanyi.
