ok results from google: Yanni FAQ!!

Q. What are the words to Aria and/or Niki Nana?
A. There aren't any real words to either song (except in Niki Nana where parts are actual English words).
About Aria: The music is loosely based on the French opera from the 19th century called 'Lakme' by Leo Delibes, but Yanni didn't use actual words in the song -- they are vocal expressions or sounds made with singing voices. I'm aware of some the sounds seem like words -- especially French words -- but they aren't... at least, probably not intentionally.
