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

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 damn 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
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



It’s a traffic jam when you’re already late

It’s 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
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
