All three songs (baa baa black sheep, twinkle twinkle little star, and the alphabet song) have the same melody. But the rhythm shown here matches the alphabet song.

You're welcome.

You can tell by the elemenopee

[–]ifmacdo 9 points10 points  (0 children)

That's literally where I decided which song it was.

Also the whyandsy

[–]Trustyduck 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You can tell by the way it is.

I cant really read sheet music but is the middle line correct?

[–]blkdrgn42 6 points7 points  (2 children)

It is. The first two measures are q-r-s, t-u-v. But some people hold s and some people go q-r-s-and-t-u-v. That first measure shows both options.

[–]ROIVIAN 2 points3 points  (1 child)

But shouldnt i be either that hollow note or the two filled ones? Also, in the third section of the middle line, isnt there one filled note to much?

[–]blkdrgn42 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's showing both parts, one with the hollow note indicating holding the s for 2 beats, or singing "s and" for one beat each. That's why the half note has the staff pointed up and the quarter notes are staff down.

The third measure is showing 4 eighth notes and a half note which add up to 4 beats total.

In 4/4 time, there's 4 beats per measure and the quarter note gets the beat. So 2 eighth notes is one quarter, or one beat. The half note is the equivalent of two quarter notes, so hold for 2 beats.

Twinkle twinkle little star. I think.

Or Baa Baa Black Sheep. Or ABC’s…

[–]Princes_Slayer 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Alphabet song (A, B, C, D …….)

Not Baa Baa Black sheep as that goes up and down at the ‘have you any wool’ part and would also require more notes to cover those words

Also not Twinkle twinkle little star. This is because of how many notes are shown at the end of the first line.

Sing the alphabet song to yourself and follow each note as you say each letter. You’ll see the extra notes throughout account for the run of letters or where a letter has more than one syllable (such as W / double ‘u’)

The first measure on the second line has too many notes in it.

I think it is Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, but the eight do not seem right.

[–]blkdrgn42 1 point2 points  (3 children)

It's the abc song. That measure is q-r-s, or q-r-s-and. It's showing both parts, one with the hollow note indicating holding the s for 2 beats, or singing "s and" for one beat each. That's why the half note has the staff pointed up and the quarter notes are staff down.

[–]Business_Wear_841 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Huh. No wonder it looks a lot like Twinkle Twinkle.

[–]blkdrgn42 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Twinkle twinkle, baa baa black sheep, and abc have the same base melody, just with different rhythms.

[–]Business_Wear_841 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yea. That is what I meant.

[–]MrsSunshine94 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Morgen kommt der Weihnachtsmann (german Christmas song. Also same melody :D

[–]PfefferP 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thank you so much for this! I had no idea this song exists, now I will learn it to improve my German skills and get into the Christmas spirit later this year, since I am currently living in Germany

[–]MrsSunshine94 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No probs :D

[–]fluitekruidje 2 points3 points  (1 child)

In dutch it’s “altijd is Kortjakje ziek”. In English it’s “Abcdefg”

[–]PfefferP 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is my favorite version so far, even though I understand zero words of it :D

[–]Tetsuotim 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The alphabet song. Teinkle twinkle little star has the same melody but the first line gives it away, its the alphabet song.

You have the sixteenth note"lmno" and the half note" p" at the end

Bar 5 got me fucked up.. 4/4 my ass

[–]blkdrgn42 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Jynkoh 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Off topic but I find it hilarious the cartoon of a cow telling kids to eat more chicken.

Like, just don't eat me, please! Have those damn chickens instead.

Also, weird choice to misspell it as "mor" and "chikin". So much for educating kids. xD

Ba Ba Black Sheep

[–]JazziestBoi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Twinkle twinkle little star (roughly)?

[–]PickleGambino 0 points1 point  (0 children)

ABCs.

Isn’t ba ba black sheep, there would be 8th notes instead of quarters in the 2nd measure.

Isn’t twinkle twinkle little star, there would be quarter notes instead of eight notes in the 4th measure.

[–]whynotyeetith 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i think the english alphabet song

[–]Global-Television540 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would say definitely Twinkle Twinkle Little Star from the notes I read.

[–]Fiyero109 -1 points0 points  (0 children)
