The song starts out in the key of A major and with a 7/4 time signature. At approximately 0:18, the song repeats again, but in the key of D major. After this, at approximately 0:37, the time signature changes to 3/4, and the song's key changes to G major. At 0:53, the song returns to 7/4 and returns to the original A major key, and plays a bar before looping from the start.

The song differs slightly between versions; The Japanese version plays the instrumentation louder, in the North American and European versions, the instrumentation was changed to play quieter. In addition, the European version plays the song approximately a ¼ step flat. The original Famicom Disk System version makes use of the extra wavetable channel supplied by the Disk System's RP2C33, and is used for bass.
