Another reconstruction of the original Klingon lyrics to a song I sometimes sing as a lullaby to my almost-four-month-old. The second verse sort of crystalized in my head, and the rest fell out from that. In case you’re wondering why it’s not *pe'vIlHa'* HImuSHa', Klingons really don’t seem like the tender loving type.




pe'vIl jIH HImuSHa'qu',
'ej HI'uchHa'Qo'.
yInwIj DanaQmoHchu'pu',
qamuSHa'qu'mo'.

pe'vIl HImuSHa', bangwI',
chabal tIteHmoH.
qaStaHvIS poH nI', poH nI',
Hochlogh bangwI' SoH.

pe'vIl jIH HImuSHa'taH,
tIqlIjDaq HIDev.
DaqwIj 'oH, vaj pa' vIjaH,
jIratlh not 'e' vImev.

pe'vIl HImuSHa', bangwI',
chabal tIteHmoH.
qaStaHvIS poH nI', poH nI',
Hochlogh bangwI' SoH.

pe'vIl, pe'vIl HImuSHa',
banglI' jIH yIjatlh.
Hoch Qaw'lu'chu' qamaghpa',
reH SoHvaD jImatlh.

pe'vIl HImuSHa', bangwI',
chabal tIteHmoH.
qaStaHvIS poH nI', poH nI',
Hochlogh bangwI' SoH.

pe'vIl HImuSHa', bangwI',
chabal tIteHmoH.
qaStaHvIS poH nI', poH nI',
Hochlogh bangwI' SoH.




Forcefully love me very much,
And do not let go of me.
You have made my life perfectly whole,
Because I love you very much.

Forcefully love me, my loved one,
Make the dreams be true.
While a long period of time is occurring, a long period of time,
You will be my loved one forever.

Forcefully love me continuously,
Lead me to your heart.
It is my place, therefore I will go there,
I will never cease to remain.

Forcefully love me, my loved one,
Make the dreams be true.
While a long period of time is occurring, a long period of time,
You will be my loved one forever.

Forcefully, forcefully love me,
Tell me I am your loved one.
Everything will be perfectly destroyed before I will betray you,
I will always be loyal to you.

Forcefully love me, my loved one,
Make the dreams be true.
While a long period of time is occurring, a long period of time,
You will be my loved one forever.

Forcefully love me, my loved one,
Make the dreams be true.
While a long period of time is occurring, a long period of time,
You will be my loved one forever.
