rewireing a Lamp

Let me describe my delema:I'll try and explain as best as possible
It's a 3 bulb lamp (antique) bulb on the left bulb on the right and a bulb in the middle total of 3. At the bottem is a switch I replaced the type you push in to turn on and you push it again to turn off (something like a TOGGLE) anyway I have wires comeing in from the left right and in the middle also the two (2) wires from the toggle my question is does each wire (1) one get attached to one of the toggle wires if I had a diagram it would be easier to see I hope I explained it as simple as possible.
If possible you can email me at the following also leave it on the board for the next person who runs into this problem

You should have 2 wires from the cord that plugs in, 2 wires from the switch, 2 wires from each lamp.
Connect as follows.
Wire from the small spade (should be the ribbed one) to 1 wire from each light(the ribbed one). 4 wires total connected together.
Other wire from cord to one from switch.
Other wire from switch to remaining 3 wires from lights.
