Twinkle, Twinkle, E-F-G

Something a little–OK, almost completely–different today. I just wanted to do something before I come back for 5-a-week.

This is a little song I came up with a few months ago. I decided that it’s a good present for the start of the new year.

About the song… it’s (hopefully) not news to anyone who grew up speaking English that the songs “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” and the alphabet (or A-B-C) song have the same melody. Stranded with nothing better to do, I decided to combine the two into the amazing song you see below.

Twinkle, twinkle, E-F-G

How I wonder LMNOP

Up above the T-U-V

W-X-Y in the sky

Now I know my little star

Next time won’t you what you are.

Obviously there are many ways you could change and improve the song, but this is the version I came up with. I liked it the straight-forward structure, even though its grammar a little off.

I hope 2008 will be good to you.
