Explanation:
in english:

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

When the blazing sun is gone
When he nothing shines upon
Then you show your little light
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are

Then the traveler in the dark
Thanks you for your tiny spark
He could not see which way to go
If you did not twinkle so
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are

in dutch:

Altijd is Kortjakje ziek
midden in de week maar zondags niet
zondags gaat zij naar de kerk
met haar boek vol zilverwerk
altijd is kortjakje ziek
midden in de week maar zondags niet
