Alanis Morissette – Ironic

An old man turned ninety-eight 
He won the lottery and died the next day 
It’s a black fly in your Chardonnay 
It’s a death row pardon two minutes too late 
Isn’t it ironic, don’t you think 

It’s like rain on your wedding day 
It’s a free ride when you’ve already paid 
It’s the good advice that you just didn’t take 
And who would’ve thought, it figures 

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly 
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids good-bye 
He waited his whole damned life to take that flight 
And as the plane crashed down he thought 
“Well isn’t this nice” 
And isn’t it ironic…don’t you think 

It’s like rain on your wedding day 
It’s a free ride when you’ve already paid 
It’s the good advice that you just didn’t take 
And who would’ve thought, it figures 

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you 
When you think everything’s okay and everything’s going right 
And life has a funny way of helping you out when 
You think everything’s gone wrong and everything blows up in your face 

A traffic jam when you’re already late 
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break 
It’s like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife 
It’s meeting the man of my dreams 
And then meeting his beautiful wife 

And isn’t it ironic, don’t you think 
A little too ironic, and yeah I really do think 

It’s like rain on your wedding day 
It’s a free ride when you’ve already paid 
It’s the good advice that you just didn’t take 
And who would’ve thought, it figures 

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you 
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out 
Helping you out
