I don't know much about music (anymore) but know there are more than one scale but the same note just lower and higher.
You can play Mary Had a Little Lamb on a high scale of notes or a low one, as demonstrated in this instance of the parade and Emperor's theme. If that's what Lynk said, than ok.
If these won't convince you, then I'll let you believe what you will because I ain't gonna photocopy the article for you
