Carmina Burana: Tanz lyrics

O Fortune,
Just as the moon
Stands constantly changing,
Always increasing
Or decreasing;
Detestable life
Now difficult
Snd then easy
Deceptive sharp mind;
It melts them like ice.

And empty,
You whirling wheel,
Stand malevolent,
Well-being is vain
And always fades to nothing,
And veiled
You plague me too;
Now through the game,
My bare back
I bring to your villainy.

Fate, in health
And in virtue,
Is now against me
Driven on
And weighted down,
Always enslaved.
So at this hour
Without delay
Pluck the vibrating string;
Since through Fate
Strikes down the strong,
Everyone weep with me!

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

Sors immanis
Et inanis,
Rota tu volubilis,
Status malus,
Vana salus
Semper dissolubilis,
Et velata
Mihi 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!

O Fortune,
Just as the moon
