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!

Moving around like the Pop It crew is the way to the perfect dance for you!
Some primates live in trees and some live on the land and in trees. In this episode we meet KINDERZOO’s finest primates like our host Gabby the Gibbon, Deni the Douc Langur, Marty the Mandrill, Colin the Colobus Monkey and Mike the Proboscis Monkey. We also learn how Mike got his large nose in Kinderzoo Tales.
In this episode we go on safari in Africa and meet Polly the Springbok Antelope, Harry the Hippopotamus, Rhiannon the Rhinoceros and we see two of our favourites running around – Debra the Forgetful Zebra and Ryan the Lion. Our KInderzoo Tale this week is about how Gerry the Giraffe got his long neck.

Alternative Lyrics & Related Songs

Here's a short version or an additional line that makes little sense but is fun

Sprinkle, sprinkle little bar
What I wonder is a cat.

This is a cute version about dad driving the motor car

Twinkle twinkle chocolate bar
Daddy drives a motor car
Push the button
Pull the choke
Off we go in a cloud of smoke twinkle Twinkle twinkle chocolate bar
Daddy drives a motor car.

This version is about being a traveller and looking at the night sky

All us travelers in the dark
Thank you for your tiny spark
We 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
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

Religious version

Twinkle, twinkle little star
Jesus tells us, who you are
Up above the world so high
Angel peeping through the sky
Twinkle, twikle little star
Jesus tells us who you are!

This is a longer version adding more descriptions for the night sky

Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Shining in the heavens bright
Like a beacon in the night
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

Here are some additional verses that you can add on

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.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.

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

Here's a longer version that tells of the night sky and the traveller who looks upon it

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 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 traveler 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 traveler in the dark,
Through I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

A special version for the boys to sing along to:

Twinkle Twinkle Chocolate Bar
My Daddy Drives a Racing Car
He drives fast
He drives slow
Where he goes I do not know
Twinkle Twinkle Chocolate Bar
My Daddy Drives a Racing Car.

Daddy Brought A Motor Car Version

Add this verse after the first verse.

Twinkle twinkle little star daddy brought a motor car
Push the button pull the choke
Off we go in a cloud of smoke
Twinkle twinkle little star
Daddy brought a motor car.

This is the original song where the child desires candy.

Ah! Vous dirai-je, Maman,
Ce qui cause mon tournment?
Papa veut que je raisonne,
Comme une grande personne;
Moi, je dis que les bonbons
Valent mieux que la raison.

Translation into English

Ah! Let me tell you, Mother,
What's the cause of my torment?
Papa wants me to reason
Like a grown-up.
Me, I say that candy has
Greater value than reason.

Here's a version about the moon rather than the stars

Softly shining silver moon,
Peeking at me in my room,
When you're in the sky at night,
The world around me glows so brightly,
Softly shining silver moon,
If you go, please come back soon.
