Does anyone know this version:

123456, this song is called chopsticks, it puts you in a fix, so that you just can't quit, playing and playing it 'cause it's your favorite, it's really quite a hit you must admit.

Now here's a brand (or whole) new way to play (or do) it, Your right hand plays the same routine, your left hand plays a different melody, Look here's just what I mean.

The other melody is "Ach Du Lieber Augustin" or "Have You Ever Seen A Lassie." We once had this piece of music. It got torn up though. Does anyone know what version this is?

In the film Sincerely Yours, the world-famous pianist played by Liberace (good casting, I suppose) takes requests from his audience, and agrees to a little girl's suggestion that he play "Chopsticks." He begins with two fingers, but before long is blasting out a grand version of the song with orchestral support and an increasing quantity of fluorishes. WHPratt (talk) 00:14, 12 April 2009 (UTC)
