Although in C major, the song’s melody is characterized by many accidental notes, which make the piece a little more difficult to memorize on the glockenspiel / xylophone. As you will see in the color map below, all the notes of C major are used plus three of the upper row of the instrument: C#, F# and G#. On the first page of the score you’ll find the first theme of the song, while on the second one you’ll find the chorus.

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.
