A lullaby was a soothing tune typically sung to soothe an infant or young child and help them to sleep. Lullabies typically featured simple, easy-to-remember lyrics and a gentle melody.
In 2154, Doctor Phlox considered singing a Denobulan lullaby to soothe Captain Jonathan Archer's dog, Porthos, but ultimately decided against it, as his singing had often driven his children to tears in the past. (ENT: "Storm Front")
In 2369, when Lieutenant Worf visited the Romulan prison camp on Carraya IV, he taught the Klingon children of their culture and among the things they learned was that a particular song that had been sung to them as a lullaby was in fact a Klingon warrior's song of victory.
