Twinkle,TwinkleLittleStar

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star is a traditional nursery rhyme song that was written by Ann Taylor from the 19th century. The song was first performed in Pop Go The Wiggles.

Before this song was recorded, it was sung by Greg in Splish Splash Big Red Boat. Then later, it was rehearsed in Wiggledancing! Live in Concert. Another version of this song was sung by Gillian Eastoe on ABC For Kids: Live In Concert.

For the Wiggles and Sam's version, they have added a second verse, before repeating the first.

The Wiggles usually do a human pyramid at the end during their "Carols in the Domain" cues, but in 2013, they do a human pyramid after "Curoo Curoo".

Lyrics

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
