#274 Alternative lyrics for Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

There's some kind of Twinkle Twinkle song going around where they mess up the lyrics and replace them with a pile of garbage.

Think of the very worst song lyrics you've ever heard in your life. For example, every single Eurovision song contest entry ever and all the times a character in The Simpsons has burst into song. It's even worse than that.

I have no idea where the new version came from. It's been a long time since I was Twinkle Twinkle age, so for all I know, it could be 20 years old. It's hard to imagine lyrics that shocking could have survived for 20 years though.

To survive over time, words must replicate. If they can get into books or other media, all the better. It pains me to say it but by writing this post I am perhaps enabling the song to be shared further still but it's of relatively little concern since very few people read my blog.

It's obviously an ad for carports, garages and garports.

Did you know that tune is Mozart?

If it were an ad, I shouldn't mind.

I did not know that, thank you, you are a bottomless well of facts :)

He wrote variations on the folk tune it originated as.
