Translation of the song Eifel 65 - I'm Blue ;D ;D :P
On some parts I wasn't sure, so feel free to correct me. :)


Yo listen up here's a story
yo tìng mikyun, lu vur
about a little guy that lives in a blue world
teri hì'ia tutan a kelku si kifkeymì aean
and all day and all night and everything he sees
ulte fratrr sì fratxon sì fra'u a pol tse'a,
is just blue like him inside and outside
lu nì'aw ean na po, mìfa sì wrrpa,
blue his house with a blue little window
ean lu peyä kelku a tsaru lu hì'ia ropx aean
and a blue corvette
ulte eana pa'li lefngap
and everything is blue for him and hisself
ulte pori fra'u lu ean ulte snori
and everybody around
ulte frapori a sim talun ke lu por kawtu
cos he ain't got nobody to listen to
a tsun tsapot yivune

i'm blue da ba dee da ba die...
Oe lu ean ta pa ti ta pa tay...

Nice work, even if I don't speak Na'vi very much. I'll mail it to James Cameron, to bring this in the next movie :P

I think this song is so appropriate in this forum!  :D ;D :) I even know it, just didn't ever to try to read  its text.
It's good job, it's hard to think about different way of translating. There are some strange places (like "ulte pori fra'u lu ean, ulte snori" which sounds too word-by-word translation, unfortunately I can't find better way now)

As for corvette - it means probably name/type of spaceship, so maybe tawsìp could be better. Pa'li lefngap sounds more like car, but, nevermind. I like this exercise ;D

I very much doubt the Na'vi have a word for car, let alone Corvette.
Actually, that may not be entirely true, the Chevrolet Corvette was named after a type of small warship, who's name derives form the the word corf or corve, a type of boat in Holland, or a box which allows water to come and go but not the actual contents. These boxes may be made of pierced wood, net or or similar, used to transport live fish, craw fish or similar. Do the Na'vi have something similar?

Pa'li lefngap = car/motorbike?
But in that song was not meant a type of car? ??? Or it's really mean a spaceship?
