Ironic
Alanis Morissette Lyrics


Hey, I, I
Yeah, ah, ah
Yeah, I

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
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

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
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
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

And yeah, well, life has a funny way
Of sneaking up on you
And life has a funny, funny way
Of helping you out
Helping you out

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
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
Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
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
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
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...

Hey, yeah, yeah
Yeah, ah-ah-ah, yeah

My mom played songs like these a lot when I was a kid. She got pregnant in high school, had to abandon any college hopes to take care of 2 kids, was in an abusive marriage, then finally got out of that marriage and had to raise and support me and my sibling practically by herself. I'm now 33 and looking back on the stuff she listened to in the 90s makes me think about how lost and afraid of the harsh reality of her world she must have been. I know she did her very best, and even if she didn't feel very strong as she went through all that, I'll always see her as one of the strongest women in the world

Cool story. Nooooootttttttttt

Cristina C.

Hope my son one day appreciate me like you are doing to your mother!
Very nice of you!

S. E. Abendschoen

You are wise beyond your years, Taizen!

Your Words of recognition, admiration and profound appreciation are the Greatest Gift you could ever give your Mother.  
To let her know that she raised a Child with a strength of Character, Compassion and Emotional Depth no doubt demonstrates the fruition of all her selfless efforts and sacrifices

The 90s were amazing 😍 I'm so happy I grew up in the 80s and 90s. I swear I fell in love over and over again. The music made you want to live!

I grew up before 5 year old kids were given technology (born in 82). I feel you. I didn't graduate high school until 2000 (class of 2000!) when I was 18, then cell phones were starting to come around. Respect!
