For He's a Jolly Good Fellow

For He's a Jolly Good Fellow is a traditional song sung to congratulate a person on an event.(1)(2)

During the TNG episode "Parallels", the crew of the Enterprise sings a song with Klingon words adapted to "For he's a jolly good fellow". When they are finished, Worf says "That was not a Klingon song". The words either have no meaning, or they have a very bad pronunciation. These are the sounds heard:

cha wo'rIv toHgaHnaH lo pIre'toq
cha wo'rIv toHgaHnaH lo pIre'toq
cha wo'rIv toHgaHnaH lo pIre'toq
Tu Mak Dagh Cha doh Borak!
