                Pretty easy song off BNL's 2000 album "Maroon". In the U.S. it's spelled "Humor", 
in Canada it's spelled "Humour". I figured I'd go with "Humour" since that's what 
it says on the back of my "Maroon" CD. Anyways:

-Standard Tuning-

-Capo on the 2nd fret-

-Tempo-
Fast ♩ = 152

The chords are played as follows:

[Intro]
Gmaj7, Em7 (x4)

[Verse 1]
G                  Em7                 Cadd9
   When you walked in, I said with a grin
                    D                G
That we were just talking about you
              Em9                    Cadd9
We all had to lie because you would cry
                      D
If you knew we were laughing at you

[Pre-Chorus 1]
       G         Eb+             Em              G/F
In the momentary lull before the band begins to play
            C           D7sus        G  D7sus
There's an overwhelming stench of alibi

[Chorus]
G              Em7
  Come on now, now
              Cm
Come on now, now
           Am           D        G
Enjoy the humour of the situation
              Em7
Come on now, now
              Cm
Come on now, now
           Am           D
Enjoy the humour of the situation

[Instrumental]
Gmaj7, Em7 (x2)

[Verse 2]
I said on the phone "Don't wait 'till 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

[Pre-Chorus 2]
In the hour that it took for me to drive up to the door
You'd arranged all my belongings on the lawn

[Chorus] (x2)
Come on now, now
Come on now, now
Enjoy the humour of the situation 

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

[Chorus] (x2)
Come on now, now
Come on now, now
Enjoy the humour of the situation 

[Verse 3]
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

[Pre-Chorus 3]
My mind was racing with each chance that I had missed
While your next door neighbour soaked be with the house

[Pre-Chorus 4]
I've never felt so small, I've never been so dissed
As I shiver, dripping, while the chorus goes:

[Chorus] (x3)
Come on now, now
Come on now, now
Enjoy the humour of the situation

[Coda]
G, Em7, Cm, Am, D, Am, D, G

[End on G]
