Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star係首好流行嘅英文兒歌 (nursery rhyme)。中文亦通常叫一閃一閃小星星一閃一閃亮晶晶。首歌曲詞各有來源,音係來自1761年出版嘅法文歌Ah! vous dirai-je, Maman,字就係來自Jane Taylor首英文詩The Star

旋律[編輯]

支旋律喺 1761年出版,原本唔係童謠來嘅。首歌家下留到最早嘅字,係1774年嘅Ah! vous dirai-je, Maman,意思係呀!我會講你聽,媽。。呢首歌風行歐洲莫札特都同佢作咗十二變奏Variations on "Ah vous dirai-je, Maman"K.265/300e,唔少人重以為支旋律係佢作嘅[1]

英文除咗呢首歌用Ah! vous dirai-je, Maman之外,1834年作嘅字母歌(Alphabet Song),同埋Baa, Baa, Black Sheep都一樣咁出名。

歌詞[編輯]

Jane Taylor首英文詩The Star1806年出版,收響Rhymes for the Nursery本書入便。本書係Jane Taylor同佢大家姐Ann Taylor嘅詩集。而首詩本身,喺用咗聯句(couplet)來表達。

原文歌詞分五節,其中第一段最出名。有時原文之外,每節畀人重覆頭兩行落尾度,原因係唱童謠嘅習慣。以下係原文[2][3]

: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 traveller in the dark,— :Though I know not what you are, :Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

家下通常只係唱短版,頭兩行尾度重唱:

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!

其他版本[編輯]

因為首歌膾炙人口,詞本身有唔少譯本。亦有唔少係改版。

其中愛麗斯夢遊仙境,就有呢個版本:

Twinkle, twinkle, little bat!
How I wonder what you're at!
Up above the world you fly,
Like a teatray in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle—
