This is the easy Middle C arrangement for beginners.  This can be turned into a duet by using C, F, and G chords with a boogie pattern like Wabash Cannonball.

Here is a nice casual rehearsal video with Jewel and a backup choir (short ad to start -  sorry!):

Chances are good that your young students have heard this song before, which will aid them in interpreting the rhythm of the melody.  

Otherwise you'll have a bit of counting to do - but with the swing rhythm, that will be fun!

The thumbs are NOT sharing Middle C, so a little right hand/left hand work is helpful...

I like to close the piano lid, hold both hands above the lid, then tap or "play" the tune on the lid with the appropriate hand as we sing the words (with the whole hand, not the fingers).

Now here are two nearly identical arrangements, except the second one has a few filled chords in the right hand, making it a great deal harder.

Anna Lee:
What a fabulous website! I've been a keen amateur piano player since I first learnt 56 years ago at the age of 8.

I now have a three year old granddaughter and am hoping fervently that she'll want to learn - at which point I'll teach her. This is just the kind of resource I'll need to make it comprehensible. Thank you very much.

Thank you so much for this simple, easy to read version as my vocalists are not professional and this music won't be quite so intimidating as other arrangements I have. Your expertise is much appreciated!!  Merry Christmas!
