Default Na'vi Songs

Lyrics from a complex Na'vi weaving song,

Tompay kato, tsawkey kato,
Trr s txon
S() ayzst kato,
Sekong telan,
Telan le-Navi
Oeru teya si,
Oeru teya si.

Katot tftxu oel
Nean nrim,
Ayzst kato,
heyu srey,
heyu srey,
Srey le-Navi
Oeru teya si,
Oeru teya si.

unofficial translation ( notice me if i make mistake )

The rhythm of rain and sun
Of night and day,
The rhythm of the years,
And the beat of the hearts,
Hearts of the People
Fills me,
Fills me.

I weave the rhythm
In yellow and blue
The rhythm of the years,
The spiral of the lives,
The spiral of the lives,
Lives of the People
Fills me,
Fills me.

I could jam out to that
These are how the songs actually sound (they're on the score)

I tried to find the lyrics and translation to the song being sung during Jake's first flight. The lyrics I found (at a stupid lyrics.com type site) just had the two letter sounds that were sung. So if there were actual Na'vi words, they were broken up phoenetically.

I remember seeing the translation of one song somewhere a while ago but can't find it now. The weaving song I did see in the Survivalist Guide but nothing else.
Anyone have a better source?

I found this a while ago:

Lyrics - Jake's First Flight

Not much, but it's all I've found

Thanks for the link!
It does sound like Jake's first flight is also the prayer at the Tree of Souls. I'm getting an idea on doing an English version of it based on what little translation people have done.
I just know I saw that prayer song translated somewhere! Going to have to go look at some books in the bookstore.

I've found some lyrics here --> Song lyrics from the Avatar soundtrack , reply #53 ... I had been looking for the lyrics at the end of Jake's First Flight (~3:38), and in my opinion ... this one is quite good !

UTRAL LENAWM AYRINA NGAY OER

Tree great's seeds true to me

UTRAL LENAWM AYRINA LU AYOER

Tree great's seeds are to us

A PXEY TTXUR FPI NA MA KY M AYOE

which three's strength for sake of like go behind us

I didn't do this translation

I think I can figure out what it means from that. It's difficult to do translations just going by the words as they're presented. This is true of any language really, the context and other grammatical situations makes a difference in how it is interpreted.
Thanks!

Few additional songs floating out there:

Hunt Song: (One of several hunt songs)

Terran ayoe ayngane
Zera’u
Rerol ayoe ayngane
Ha ftxey
Awpot set ftxey ayngal a l(u) ayngakip
Awpot a Na’viru yomtyng.

Chorus (repeated)
-----------------------------
Chorus:
Oey swizaw nngay tivakuk
Oey tukrul txe’lanit tivakuk
Oeri tngayl txe’lanit tivakuk
Oey txe’lan livu ngay.

-----------------------------
Lu nga win s txur
Lu nga txantslusam
Livu win s txur oe zene
Ha n()’aw
Pxan livu txo n’aw oe ngari
Tsakrr nga Na’viru yomtyng.

Chorus (repeated)

We are walking your way
We are coming
We are singing your way
So choose
Choose one among you
Who will feed the People.
Chorus (repeated)
-----------------------------
Chorus:
Let my arrow strike true
Let my spear strike the heart
Let the truth strike my heart
Let my heart be true.
-----------------------------
You are fast and strong
You are wise
I must be fast and strong
So only
Only if I am worthy of you
Will you feed the People.
Chorus (repeated)


Tree Song (Funeral Song)

Utral (a)Nawm
ayrina’l(u) ayoeng,
A pey ttxur m hinam awngey
N(a) aysangek afkeu,
M pun
N(a) ayvul ahusawnu,
M() aynar
Na seze
A ’ong ne tsawke.
Utral (a)Nawm
ayrina’ l(u) ayoeng,
A pey trol m() awnga.


We are all seeds
Of the Great Tree,
Whose strength is in our legs
Like the mighty trunks,
In our arms
As sheltering branches,
In our eyes
The blue-flower
Which unfolds to the sun.
We are all seeds
Of the Great Tree
Whose song is within us.


Spiral Song

Pamtseol ngop ayrenut
M ronsem tfnu
Tengfya ngop sftxuyul
M hifkey.

---------------------
Chorus:
Awnga rol fte kivame
Kame fte rivol
Rerol tengkr ker
l fya’o avol
Ne kxamtseng.

---------------------
Aywayl ym kifkey
’heyut avomrr
Sn tireafya’o avol
Na waytelem hng.

Chorus repeated

Music creates patterns
In the silence of the mind
As weavers do
In the physical world.
---------------------
Chorus:
We sing to See
We See to sing
We sing our way
Down the eight paths
To the center.
---------------------
The songs bind the thirteen spirals
Of the solid world
To the eight spirit paths
Like the threads of a Songcord.
Chorus repeated

The Tree Song has to be it... thanks for those lyrics! It's just one of those things that drives you nuts in the back of your mind but really isn't that important.

(I just noticed...is Quaritch wearing a ring???? Look at that sig picture...)

I'm not sure what it is. I didn't edit it in, the original picture I used to make this had it but I don't think its a ring. He must have something inside his grip that we can't see.

And on the topic of songs..something that just occurred to me...

Has anyone translated the song "I See You" into Na'vi?? It wouldn't parse as well but I think most of the words and concepts are right there in the language we've been shown already...
whoa. I would do it but I am not that conversant in the language to do it justice, but might go at it anyway.

Yes, there is a na'vi version of it from in learnnavi.org

"Leona Lewis - I See You" translated into Na'vi

I was just trying to use the limited translator that I have access to and it wasn't translating all the words so I'm glad someone else was able to do it. The translator program I have doesn't have all the newest words so it wasn't doing a very good job.
Thanks for the link!
