I've become obsessed with the wild 1976 funk-folk song Аман яр (Aman Yar) by the Azerbaijan group Гая (Qaya). You can hear it here, but I can't find lyrics anywhere. Can anyone translate, or let me know what the song is about?

What language is this? The two things I remember sounded like "nazoor sun" and "sollaar sun" for how are you and fine thanks, or similar. The guy who taught me speaks several languages including Farsi, Arabic, Azerji and Turkish, but googling hasn't worked for me. What was he teaching me? I'd like to learn some phrases in that language to surprise him with next time I see him.

So, despite your advice, I ended up declining my first Peace Corps offer. But good news! I've been given an assignment in Azerbaijan that I've accepted. [more inside]
