I had <DaH> taking the place of "Z" in the song.
While Klingon & English both have 26 characters, w is 3 syllables and ' is 2.

That doesn't seem to match the syllable count of the English version (7 

syllables: "Now I know my ABCs"), but it would make more sense to me as 

DaH 'at bay chay je vISov 

This has seven syllables and doesn't have the superfluous "my" or the 

English plural (ABCs).

Maybe the scansion is messed up because I took it out of context, but that 

doesn't effect the other points.
