O Fortuna (the Carlton Big Ad song)

Most people will recognise this from the Carlton Big Ad. There is actually an extra bit at the beginning not in the ad that I wrote lyrics for. We can cut them out if we needed to. I've got two versions, one for if we use it on stage and one for using it as a promo for the show. We could spoof the ad by running down Eastern Avenue in our revue shirts or something.

Original Lyrics:

(O For-tu-na
ve-lut lu-na
sta-tu va-ri-a-bi-lis)

It's a big ad!
Very big ad!
It's a big ad we're in!
It's a big ad!
My God it's big!
Can't believe how big it is!
It's a big ad!
For Carlton Draught
It's just so freaking HUGE!
It's a big ad!
Expensive ad!
This ad better sell some bloooooooooody beer!

Original Lyrics:

(O For-tu-na
ve-lut lu-na
sta-tu va-ri-a-bi-lis)

It's a big ad!
My God it's big!
Can't believe how big it is!

It's a big ad!
Expensive ad!
This ad better sell some bloooooooooody beer!
