“Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” lyrics

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 gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. As your bright and tiny spark,
Lights the traveller in the dark.
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

6. Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.

7. Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
How I wonder what you are.
How I wonder what you are.

“Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” French lyrics
Ah! vous dirai-je, maman (paroles de chanson française)

1. Ah ! vous dirai-je, maman,
Ce qui cause mon tourment?
Depuis que j’ai vu Clitandre,
Me regarder d’un air tendre;
Mon cœur dit à chaque instant:
“Peut-on vivre sans amant?”

2. L’autre jour, dans un bosquet,
De fleurs il fit un bouquet ;
Il en para ma houlette
Me disant : “Belle brunette,
Flore est moins belle que toi;
L’amour moins tendre que moi.

3. Étant faite pour charmer,
Il faut plaire, il faut aimer;
C’est au printemps de son âge,
Qu’il est dit que l’on s’engage.
Si vous tardez plus longtemps,
On regrette ces moments.”

4. Je rougis et par malheur
Un soupir trahit mon cœur.
Le cruel avec adresse,
Profita de ma faiblesse:
Hélas, maman! un faux pas
Me fit tomber dans ses bras.

5. Je n’avais pour tout soutien
Que ma houlette et mon chien.
L’amour, voulant ma défaite,
Ecarta chien et houlette;
Ah ! qu’on goûte de douceur,
Quand l’amour prend soin d’un cœur!
