Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

Listen to this songThis old classic shares the same tune as The Alphabet Song and Baa Baa Black Sheep.  The words were written by the English poet Jane Taylor, way back in 1806.

Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are

Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Shining in the heavens bright
Like a beacon in the night
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are

When the blazing sun is gone
When he nothing shines upon
Then you show your little light
Twinkle, twinkle all the night
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are

I received the following verse from Rebecca M:

All us travelers in the dark
Thank you for your tiny spark
We could not see which way to go
If you did not twinkle so
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are

And Joseph S remembers his grandmother singing this verse when he was young:

In the dark blue sky you keep
Often through my curtains peep
For you never shut your eye
Till the sun is in the sky
Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are

     

Here is a cutie-pie named Chloe with her video version of Twinkle Twinkle:

    […] Note she's sort of melding the two verses I've sung her. There are even more listed here, but these are the two she knows (the traditional one and the 'all us travelers in the […]
