Lyrics

1. Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are:
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
When the blazing sun is gone
When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

2. Then the traveller in the dark
Thanks you for your little spark,
He could not see which way to go
If you did not twinkle so.
In the dark blue sky you keep,
And often through my curtains peep,
For you never shut your eye
Till the sun is in the sky.
