I'm not even going to try to make sense of this song's lyrics; suffice to say that it is a mass of syllables and words that mean nothing. Supposedly the lines from "Bagh Da..." to "...Duh rHo" mean "Firestreaks the heavens, battle has begun." [From "Birthright" (TNG). Bad job, Paramount!]
BaH: fire (torpedo, rocket, missile) (v) [From "Redemption" (TNG). A rough pronuniation would be "bakh." Canonized in The Klingon Dictionary.]

Qab jIH nagil
Qab jIH naghIl: Face me if you dare (phrase) [From "Reunion" (TNG). The translation should be "I can't speak Klingon, so I threw toghether words to mean absolutely nothing." Besides the obvious word order problems, Qab refers to the body part, not to the act of looking at someone! My pet excuse: The ancient Klingons believed that turning one's face towards an enemy was a challenge, and so they would say "Dare to turn your face towards me!" Over time, the saying has evolved into the grammatically incorrect Qab jIH nagIl, "face me dare." MSN's Klingon Compendium says that it is part of the Sonchi ceremony.]
