Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

This song is one of the most popular in the history. The melody was originally named "Ah! Vous dirai-je, Maman". Mozart actually wrote twelve variations of this song, but only the first one is widely known. Later it was adapted for English with the poem, "The Star" by Jane Taylor.

Below is the original poem:


The Star
by Jane Taylor.    

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.

Then the traveler in the dark,
Thanks you for your tiny 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.

As your bright and tiny spark,
Lights the traveler in the dark,—
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
