I was recently rewatching CTB, and during the orgy scene I actually tried to make out what the hell those operatic fat guys carrying the soup were singing about. Sad to say the only words I could pick up clearly were 'green asbestos' and 'very funny.' Now this strikes me as somewhat odd, but then again I believe I'm correct in thinking that Poledouris wrote the lyrics in English, not Latin. Therefore, it wouldn't surprise me if he snuck in a few words that were somewhat contrary to the period in which the film is set. It would be interesting to see the full lyrics of the piece anyway.
Incidentally, apologies if this thread has come up before but my search turned up nothing.
