Intro:  G  C

Verse:

G                           Em                      C

When you walked in, I said with a grin
                         D
That we were just talking about you
G                 Em                           C
We all had to lie because you would cry
                            D
If you knew we were laughing at you
Prechorus
G                      Em                C                   D
In the momentary lull before the band begins to play
              C                  D            C
There's an overwhelming stench of alibi

Chorus:
G                  Em
Come on now, now
                   C
Come on now, now
              D
Enjoy the humour of the situation
Come on now, now
Come on now, now
Enjoy the humour of the situation

Verse
I said on the phone "don't wait til I'm home"
But I'm sure I could hear you crying
I said where I was, but you doubt it because
It's the caller I.D. you're buying
Prechorus
In the hour that it took for me to drive up to the door
You'd arranged all my belongings on the lawn

Chorus:
Come on now, now
Come on now, now
Enjoy the humour of the situation
Come on now, now
Come on now, now
Enjoy the humour of the situation

Bridge:
C            EM          G                 Em
Have you heard the one about the boy
               C           D                Em
Who moved into the henhouse to sleep?
C           Em       G           Em
He woke up with egg on his face
             C                     D                         Em
When he found out all the hens had crossed the street

Chorus
Come on now, now
Come on now, now
Enjoy the humour of the situation
Come on now, now
Come on now, now
Enjoy the humour of the situation

Verse:
As I walked out, I thought about all I had left behind me
I felt a chill because I was still
Wearing the emperor's new clothes
Prechorus
My mind was racing with each chance that I had missed
While your next door neighbour soaked be with the house
I've never felt so small, I've never been so dissed
As I shiver, dripping, while the chorus goes:

Chorus
Come on now, now
Come on now, now
Enjoy the humour of the situation
Theres the humor of the situation. i dont think it's out there so i decided to make it out there.
