Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Lyrics

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

 

This is a very popular nursery rhyme song today. Many different renditions of the poem have been created.

Famous artists have based their songs on this traditional poem whose first publication was in 1806. It uses lyrics that show words are a very powerful  way of creating imagery and firing up the imagination.

For example, the comparison between the sparkling of the stars and that of the diamonds is very beautiful. 

The song was written by Ann Taylor and Jane Taylor who were sisters.

The original lyrics to the nursery rhyme are as follows:

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 traveller 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 traveller in the dark.
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

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.
How I wonder what you are.

Later versions of ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ were changed to the following:

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

When the glorious sun has set,
And the grass with dew is wet,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

When the golden sun doth rise,
Fills with shining light the skies,
Then you fade away from sight,
Shine no more ’till comes the night.
