How I wonder what you are !

As your bright and bantam sparkle
Lights the traveler in the dark,

The Full Lyrics to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

[ scandium : bottomad ] Twinkle, sparkle, little ace,
How I wonder what you are !
Up above the worldly concern then high,
Like a diamond in the flip .
When the blaze sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night .
then the traveler in the black,
Thanks you for your bantam flicker !
He could not see which way to go,
If you did not twinkle so.

In the dark blue sky you keep,
And much through my curtains peep,
For you never shut your eye
Till the sun is in the sky .
As your bright and bantam discharge
Lights the traveler in the blue,
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star .
