Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
How far is the closest star?

Play Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star on our online piano.

It is an old English lullaby. The words are by English poet Jane Taylor, from her poem, “The Star”.

The poem was first published in 1806. It is sung to the tune of the French melody “Ah! vous dirai-je, maman,” published in 1761 and arranged by many composers including Mozart. The English lyrics have six stanzas, but only the first is well known.

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 sparks;
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.
