Twinkle Twinkle Little Star is a popular English nursey rhyme, covered by Simon Le Bon in 1997.

About the rhymeEdit

The English lyrics were first published as a poem with the title "The Star" by sisters Ann and Jane Taylor in Rhymes for the Nursery, published in London during 1806. It is sung to the tune of the French melody "Ah! vous dirai-je, Maman" (oldest known publication is 1761).

Simon Le Bon sung the rhyme at the Privacy Studio in London, which was broadcast via an ISDN link on the radio morning show on Star94 in Atlanta on 24 December 1997. During the broadcast Simon and Warren Cuccurullo also performed acoustic versions of "Michael You've Got A Lot To Answer For" and "Who Do You Think You Are?".

Other appearancesEdit



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.


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.


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.


As your bright and tiny spark,

Lights the traveller in the dark,—

Though I know not what you are,

Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
