Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star – A Popular Lullaby

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star is a popular English lullaby, nursery rhyme and children song.

The lyrics are from an early 19th-century English poem written by Jane Taylor – The Star

The poem, which is in couplet form, was first published in 1806 in Rhymes for the Nursery, a collection of poems by Taylor and her sister Ann.

It is sung to the tune of the French melody Ah! vous dirai-je, maman, which was published in 1761 and later arranged by several composers, including Mozart with Twelve Variations on Ah vous dirai-je, Maman.

The song is in the public domain, and has many adaptations around the world, including the – Alphabet song and – Baa, Baa, Black Sheep.

This children song is very easy to play on piano, as it has very easy piano notations and the tune is very popular, so easy to remember.


Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star – Full Lyrics

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 travller 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 thro my curtains peep,
For you never shut your eye,
Till the sun is in the sky.

Tis your bright and tiny spark,
Lights the travller in the dark,
Tho I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
