Well, based on those two octaves the rest is pretty easy to
figure out (if you can't then you don't deserve to own that 
guitar!!  :P').

How it all fits in:

Intro: Riff 1

Riff 1
 She didn't wanna...
Riff 3
 No one should come between us...
Riff 2
 Still I was lonely...
Riff 1
 Rat tat tat...
Riff 3
 I'm a sister...
Riff 3 (Over and over again)
 I am made of shamrocks...
Riff 1
 And I said...
Riff 4
 Mary's had a little lamb...

Well, you get the idea.  After that, play Riff 1 faster and faster, then end
it with Riff 4.
