twinkle, twinkle

Rob e-mailed me today to ask if I knew that "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and the alphabet song have the same tune. I didn't know this and indeed wasn't sure that it was true (I'm not tone deaf, but it wouldn't surprise me if I was tone hearing-impaired). However, Rob said that he sang it together with his wife, Amy and confirmed that it was true:

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
now i know my A-B-Cs

how i wonder what you are
next time won't you sing with me?
