Score 1 (Introductory)
This is an introductory difficulty score with a very simple arrangement of only the melody part first.
It is transposed to the key of C major so as not to use the black keys, and is scaled to the do-re-mi scale. The left hand is also very simple (only the root note of the chord).
It may be played not only on the piano, but also on a keyboard harmonica or recorder.
Score 2 (Elementary)
Next is a slightly more difficult version of (1).
The key is A-flat major, and in addition to the heavy use of black keys, it is especially difficult for the left hand. It is also staccato to add atmosphere.
Score 3 (Advanced)
Finally, here is the full-size score of the original song.
As I explained at the beginning, this song is really, really difficult in the intro and interludes where there is no singing.
It can be made a little easier by further arranging this score, such as omitting the short pre-striking note or making a single note where there are two or more notes, but it may still be difficult.
The score is intended for those who can play the piano to some extent.
You can check out the performance video at the link, so please take a look before making a decision.
