That's a great song. I don't have the sheet, but know the song...here is the first phrase (just play the melody in your head for the exact notation) and you can probably get it from there... (I don't know if that's the right key - i first learned it on piano but use the same notes on my bari)
:treble: A - D - E - F - E- D - E - D - C - D - A

The original is in A minor, so that's F#minor on alto. Just go up the first three notes of the scale, back down again, and follow your nose from there - it's an easy tune to work out. Next thing is to get away with playing sax - the rest of the band just told me I was playing flute in it - no discussion allowed.

There's a playalong version in the book "Jazztastic: Intermediate Level", if that helps at all. I'm pretty sure it'll be in a friendly key. The backing is nicely done.
