Ironic

An old man turned 98
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

CHORUS: 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 good advice that you just didn't take
And who would have thought....it figures

Mr. Play-it-Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
He waited his whole damned life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down
He thought, "Well isn't this nice?"

CHORUS: And isn't it ironic, don't you think? It's like rain on your wedding day
A free ride when you've already paid
Good advice that you just didn't take
And who would have thought....it figures

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

It's 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

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
A free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take Who would have thought...it figures

And life has a funny way of sneaking up on you And life has a funny, funny way of helping you out...helping you out
