Three sentences for three musical phrases, all of which make up the song. In C major and in 6/8 meter, although it spans more than an octave, it is not that difficult to learn. Just follow the recipe for success: study sentence by sentence.

As you can see on the color map below, you will need 10 natural notes and one accidental, the B♭, to play the song on the glockenspiel or xylophone.

Watch the video a couple of times and study each part at your own pace until you get the hang of it. Remember to use both mallets as much as you can. For this purpose avoid using only the hand that is more convenient for you (e.g. the right one if you’re right-handed) as this an important basic technique.
