Twinkle Trivia

Adrianna and I listened to children’s music all afternoon. It got me to thinking about how several songs share the same tune as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. I can think of three other songs that share that same melody line. One is pretty common, one is moderately common, and the other one is a new one to me that I learned from one of Adrianna’s CDs.

Can you name the other songs?

This isn’t as easy as you might think, as neither Greg nor Shad realized it at first when we discussed this very thing several weeks ago.

    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 he nothing shines upon,
    Then you show your little light,
    Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.
    Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
    How I wonder what you are!
    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.
    Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
    How I wonder what you are!
    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.
    Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
    How I wonder what you are!
    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!

    […] I wrote awhile back about how there are three other songs that share the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star. As I continue to delve into the kiddie song genre, I am realizing that there are more and more children’s songs that share tunes with other popular songs. […]
