Wire all the black together and the narrow pin on the plug, that would be the gold screw.
Wire all the whites together and tot he wider pin on the plug.

You talking about using some zip cord and tape to wire a string of lights?

Sounds very unsafe and not at all a proper way of doing this.

You will need some sort of metal box to contain all the connections and bring power into the unit.
