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

"1. "饿的"换成"饥饿的"会更好些。 一只饥饿的狗跟随着我们。 跟随(follow)着(+ing)= following,跟随过(ed)= followed。 2. 这句的意思没有表述完整。只能从"聪明的"这个词猜测这和教学有关。 聪明的学生们跟不上那个老师的讲课速度。(I guess)"
