301 - A Klingon Hello

Chorus:
nuqneH, what do you want?
Wos wühst - it's a Klingon "Hello".

1.:
"Jolan Tru" is how Romulans greet,
humans say "Hi" or "Hello" when they meet,
but Klingons aren't that friendly upfront,
they brush you off - what do you want?

2.:
If they welcome you with "Qapla'",
they wish you success and would roast a lingta'
in honor of you being friend or family,
but they greet all others, as you'll see
with...

3.:
taH pagh taHbe', the original Klingonee
for "to be or not to be",
you will hear those Klingons recite
and sing an opera about a glorious fight.

4.:
tlhIngan maH taHjaj!
If they identify themselves as such,
remaining Klingon is on their mind,
Federation petaQ they'll leave behind.

HeghluʼmeH QaQ jajvam!
