Mandarin Lyrics ( The Mandarin song does not match the well known English version below except in the capture of the melody and ideas ):


一闪一闪亮晶晶
yī shǎn yī shǎn liàng jīng jīng
满天都是小星星
mǎn tiān dū shì xiǎo xīng xīng
挂在天边放光明
guà zài tiān biān fàng guāng míng
好像许多小眼睛
hǎo xiàng xǔ duō xiǎo yǎn jīng
一闪一闪亮晶晶
yī shǎn yī shǎn liàng jīng jīng
满天都是小星星
mǎn tiān dū shì xiǎo xīng xīng

English 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
