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

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

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.

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 traveler 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.

    Very few people know the actually story behind twinkle twinkle little star. It was written by a rapist. He was a rapist but he had a really nice dog named amy. She had very very twinkly eyes. He loved amy very very much, but the popo caught onto the rapists rapism ways. Social services took away amy, in fear he was committing beastiality. He looked at the stars each night imagining amy's twinkling eyes. He always said "how i wonder what you are" because he didn't know if amy was a dog or a human.
