Twinkle Twinkle

I’m always singing to Xan and occasionally I realize I don’t know all of the words. Well I do know all of the first verse for twinkle Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, but did you know there is more than one verse? I swear sometimes I think I was deprived as a child ;)

Here are the 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 the 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 couldn't 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."

And a piano rendition of the song, while very pretty a bit too fast for my lullaby rendition ;)
