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

Come on now, now, come on now, now
Enjoy the humor of the situation
Come on now, now, come on now, now
Enjoy the humor 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 humor of the situation
Come on now, now, come on now, now
Enjoy the humor of the situation

Have you heard the one about the boy
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 humor of the situation
Come on now, now, come on now, now
Enjoy the humor 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 neighbor soaked me with the hose
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 humor of the situation
Come on now, now, come on now, now
Enjoy the humor of the situation

Come on now, now, come on now, now
Enjoy the humor of the situation
