Tips: To have the right feel of the song, play the piano keys softly. Don’t hit the keys too hard, or you’ll have a dance song on your hands.

Difficulty level: This song contains no complex notes or intervals. Also, I have not included chords here. It should be super easy to get the sing once you figure out which key belongs to each note.
