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...

James plays Riff E a couple times here.
