The existing arrangements of this piece for lever harp are either very advanced or extremely short.  In this version, I've included all of the first and last sections, and limited the lever changes to the essentials.  I hope you enjoy playing this crowd-pleasing piece.  Key of F, six lever changes, three-against-two rhythm (as in original).  Some suggested fingerings; late intermediate level.
