From Mark J. Reed's mobile device:

Don't forget the {'o'megh}:

Now I know my ABC's.      (Twinkle twinkle little star)
What do you think of me?  (How I wonder what you are)

Which would be something like:

  DaH pIqaD'e' vISov.
  DaH vuDlIj'e' yIja'!

though a more Klingon approach would be:

  DaH vuDlIj vISaHbe'!
