The first time I heard this song I was in love with it.  Review the C Scale and realize that this song uses only the tones of the C scale.  A challenge would be to see if you can pluck out the melody line in the C scale.  The C scale has 7 tones starting on C D E F G A B.  There are no sharps or flats. The melody starts on E right above middle C.
