cignus ustus cantat lyrics – carl orff

olim lacus colueram,
olim pulcher ext*teram,
dum cignus ego fueram.

(male chorus)
miser, miser!
modo niger
et ustus fort*ter!

(tenor)
girat, regirat garcifer;
me rogus urit fort*ter;
propinat me nunc dapifer,

(male chorus)
miser, miser!
modo niger
et ustus fort*ter!

(tenor)
nunc in scutella iaceo,
et volitare nequeo
dentes frendentes video:

(male chorus)
miser, miser!
modo niger
et ustus fort*ter!
