Duel of the Carbohydrates

A buddy of mine sends a cute link that purports to offer us the real lyrics to John Williams's "Duel of the Fates," the music that accompanied the climactic three-way lightsaber fight in 1999's "The Phantom Menace." Williams's piece was a departure from most of his earlier Star Wars music in that it used a chorus (in the original trilogy, only "Return of the Jedi" has a choral moment). What, exactly, is the chorus singing? Is it nonsense? Is it words in an alien tongue? Click the above link and find out the answer to a question that has boggled mankind for the better part of a decade.

Is it just me or did the subtitles not sync up with the actual words? They seemed to be a little fast. Still hysterical, though.
