1. Twinkle, twinkle, little star;

How I wonder what you are,

Up above the world so high,

Like a diamond in the sky!

2. When the blazing sun is set,

And the grass with dew is wet,

Then you show your little light;

Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

3. Then, if I wore in the dark,

I would thank you for your spark.

I could not see which way to go,

If you did not twinkle so.

4. And when I am sound asleep,

Oft you through my window peep;

For you never shut your eye,

Till the sun is in the sky.
