I looked up parodies of twinkle & found:
which has the verse I quoted and credits 2 possible authors. It leaves
out the Lewis Carroll version about the bat.

There are lots of 2-chord songs, mostly bluegrass and fiddle tunes,
with very few notes and intervals.
"Shady Grove" is my own favorite.
Maybe try a google search for 2-chord songs and 1-chord songs.
That's right - in the Sitar period of the 60s a number of rock 'n'
roll hits got it down to one chord. "The Beat Goes On" by Sonny & Cher
is a one chord song. "Blue Jay Way" on the Beatles Magical Mystery
Tour album is a one-chord song. Both are "C."
Compared to these, "Twinkle/Star" (which is actually part of a
classical composition) is dreadfully complex.
"Twinkle, twiinkle, little star.
I don't wonder what you are,
For, by spectroscopic ken
I know that you are hydrogen."
That goes back - I don't remember the author - but it was probably pre-
filk - sticks in my mind because it's so bad - it was in a college
poetry textbook I read in 1972.

I need suggestions for simple songs, we're talking "Down in the
Valley," and "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." REALLY dead easy stuff.
I'm sure you're wondering why. I have a big gap in my musical
training... I suck miserably at interval identification. I can sing
them when I hear them, so it's not a hearing issue, it's a brain not
having the right tool set issue.
Any suggestions you can make would be great.
