Twinkle Twinkle Little Star is arguably the most well known children’s song in existence.  The melody is found in dozens of other nursery rhymes and is also well known as the melody behind the alphabet song that all children learn in school.  The origin of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star is widely attributed to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and was written when he was just 25 years old, however the song itself is based on an earlier piece, a French folk song called “Ah! vous dirai-je, Maman” the sheet music of which can be found via the International Music Score Library Project website.

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star 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 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.
