Intro: G Em
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
G1               G2              G3              G4
In the momentary lull before the band begins to play
           C            D           G
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

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
In the hour that it took for me to drive up to the door
You'd arranged all my belongings on the lawn

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         G/B       Bb           Am
Have you heard the one about the boy
          G#          G         D
Who moved into the henhouse to sleep?
He woke up with egg on his face
When he found out all the hens had crossed the street

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

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
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:

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

I did it!!!! (note: not a lyric from song)
