Blinka Lilla Stjärna Där
Twinkle Little Star

Children's Song
(English)

Blinka lilla stjärna där,
hur jag undrar var du är!
Fjärran lockar du min syn
likt en diamant i skyn.
Blinka lilla stjärna där,
hur jag undrar var du är!

När den sköna sol gått ner,
strax du kommer fram och ler,
börjar klar din stilla gång,
glimmar, glimmar natten lång.
Blinka lilla stjärna där,
hur jag undrar var du är!

Twinkle little star (up) there
How I wonder where you are!
Far away you invite my gaze,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle little star (up) there
How I wonder where you are!

When the fair sun has set
Soon you come forth and smile,
Starting bright you silent trek
Gleaming, gleaming all night long.
Twinkle little star (up) there
How I wonder where you are!
