RE: Song Title

It looks like you're going for "Walk Don't Run" by The Ventures (possibly
based on earlier material by Chet Atkins). This would literally be <yIyIt.
yIqetQo'.>  Since you're telling somebody to walk rather than just saying
that he is walking, you need to use an imperative prefix, and you also need
to use <-Qo'> rather than <-be'>.

However, given the need for a snappy title, a Klingon <chu'wI' ghom> would
probably use Clipped Klingon and come up with <yIt qetQo'>.
