Repeat Pre Chorus, with Lyrics: "She never, admitted, she never could sing i bet she always, remembered She's wasting all her time" Repeat Chorus several times to end. Mike Turner comes in with a random part where he plays around the 10th fret high Eb string with random bends and picking and sliding. There is no real pattern to it, so I suggest to just wing it or make something better up.
