Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Lyric

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!

When the blazing sun is gone,

When there nothing he shines upon,

Then you show your little light,

Twinkle, twinkle, through the night.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!

In the dark blue sky so deep

Through my curtains often peep

For you never close your eyes

Til the morning sun does rise

Twinkle, twinkle, little star

How I wonder what you are

Twinkle, twinkle, little star

How I wonder what you are

Singing makes the child learn how to integrate his lips and tongue. This helps speaking easier for a child. When singing a song, the child imitates the words.
