Songs

Translating songs and lullabies into Klingon is a good practice for both advanced and beginner speakers. Not having many canon Klingon songs, many songs from pop music have been translated in Klingon, some of them even performed in a professional level. Poems may be included here if they are frequently sung or named as songs.
