Wire traffic light for decoration

Wire traffic light for decoration
I have little to no knowledge on how to wire anything so I have turned to you guys to help. I acquired an old stop light and want to wire it for decoration. I have no clue where to start or anything. I was hoping someone could provide a tutorial on how to wire it.

Eventually I want to add a sequencer so the lights flash to the beat of a song. Anything can help me at this point!
