I was looking at the sheet music of Baker Street by Gerry Rafferty and saw some symbols I've never seen anywhere. One is like an eliptical bulls eye, another is a tilted S with a line through it and dots on the left and right. I hope someone can help me.

The "eliptical bull's eye" is a coda sign. The tilted S thing relates to that. What you do is play through the piece until you get to where it says something like "D.S. al coda," and then you go back to the S thing. From there, you play until you see the coda sign (the bull's eye) and then you skip forward to the actual coda, which should be labeled. The coda is always at the end of the piece. Then you just play through the coda until you get to the end. I hope I made that pretty clear.
