Here are the Riffs with the song.

Intro:
    Don't go looking for snakes you might find them
    Don't send your eyes to the sun you might blind them
    Haven't I seen you here before ?

Riff B:
         Ohhh, watch the puppets dancin'
         Yeah, see the clowns fall down
         Hey, tie your tap shoes tightly
         Yeah, and wear them into town

Riff C:
    See you crawlin'...
    See you crawlin' in...

RIff D:
    Don't go looking for snakes you might find them
    Don't send your eyes to the sun you might blind them
    Haven't I seen you here before ?
    There ain't no heroes here...no....no more

         Hey hey hey
Riff B:
         Oooh, play the game so nicely
         Oh, check, its your move now
         Yeah, we're standing in this jungle
         Yeah, with serpents I have found

Riff C:
    See you crawlin'...
    See you crawlin' in...

Riff D:
    Don't go looking for snakes you might find them
    Don't send your eyes to the sun you might blind them
    Haven't I seen you here before ?
    Have your heroes disappeared?

     Solo

Riff C:
    See you crawlin'....
    See you crawlin' in....

Riff D:
    So don't go looking for snakes you might find them
    Don't send your eyes to the sun you might blind them
    Haven't I seen you here before ?
    No there ain't no heroes here.......no no

Outro:
        Haven't I seen you here before ?
        No there ain't no heroes here.

    Don't go looking for snakes you might find them...
    Haven't I seen you here before?
    Have your heroes disappeared?

    Don't send your eyes to the sun you might blind them...
