Visit the Little Kids Rock downloads page to download sets of “Standard” and “Easy” lead sheets. Each part also comes with a link to lyrics and drum tracks that can be played in accompaniment. “Standard” sheets feature the same arrangement as in the charts below, in the key of Bb major. “Easy” sheets feature the same notation, but transposed down a half step to the key of A major, to simplify the part for keyboardists.
