Man, just when I'm starting to feel like I have a decent feel for written Na'vi, I listen to this and barely pick out every third word. :-\

The text of the song appears in this image: http://dailytrojan.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/life-avatar-James-Watson.jpg

...and it's discussed in this thread: http://forum.learnnavi.org/index.php?topic=39.0

Here it's the beginning:

Livu win si txur oe zene
Live  fast   and strong I must
I must be fast and strong

Ha n(i)'aw
so  only
So only

Pxan livu txo ni'aw oe ngari
worthy  by | if only I of-you
Only if I am worthy of you

Tsakrr nga Na'viru yomtiying
then you the People will-feed
Will you feed the People?

Here's a quick attempt to trasnliterate the text:

Lu nga win sì txur sì txantslusam
Be you fast and strong and wise
You're fast and strong and wise

Livu win sì txur oe zene
Be<iv> fast and strong I must
I must be fast and strong

Ha n'aw
so  only
So only

Pxan livu txo ni'aw oe ngari
worthy  be<iv> | if only I of-you
Only if I am worthy of you

Tsakrr nga Na'viru yomtiying
then you the People will-feed
Will you feed the People?

Oeyä swizawìl (?) tingayt tivakuk
my arrow+ERG true+ACC strike<iv>
let my arrow strike true

Oeyä tukrul txe’lanit tivakuk
my spear+ERG heart+ACC strike<iv>
let my spear strike the heart

Oeri tingayul(?) txe'lanit tivakuk
I+TP truth+? heart+ACC strike<iv>
let the truth strike my heart

Oeyä txe'lan livu ngay
my heart be<iv> true
let my heart be true

quick notes:

The ergative suffix for tingay seems tu be -u but it should be something more like ul. I didn't heard the -l...very strange. Moreover, it seems that the verb inffix -iv- is used to denote subjunctive mode, as some members pointed out!

Oel ngati irayo. This really helps with the flow of the language when spoken fluently. But the in-fixative kind of leads to more confusion. Mind explaining a subjunctive and/or the subjunctive mode?

Well, there is a bunch of helpful things, including a English to Na'vi dictionary, in the download section of the website. I've got the phonetics down, now I'm working on grammar... and it's the hardest to keep in mind especially since I only know English  :-\ Check it out

He speaks it so quickly, almost as if there are no spaces at all in the language. Maybe we've got it wrong and the only spaces are the ejectives, haha.

I removed some of the background static. There wasn't much and it doesn't make much difference, but a difference nonetheless.

I have no where to upload it and I don't want to annoy you guys with my RapidShare, so here it is on my server.

That was awesome. I'm going to need to listen to it a few times to get the greeting down. Still having some trouble with it.

The Hunt Song - Paul Frommer

I think there are spaces in between words, just when spoken fluently and fluidly and to our ears it all kind of jumbles together. Like a foreign language would to anyone who doesn't know it yet  ;D Or maybe I just don't want to learn the language all over again lol

I don't suppose there would be a way to download this into an mp3 format?
