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

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

Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out

@violet MiORider  @violet MiORider My bandmates were literally draged offside stage, cause there wasn't any space left there haha
Jennifer, our bass player, was actually standing in the crowd. But she didn't gave a shit and continued playing 😂😂
I freakin enjoyed that 🤘🏼😂

That song were i play drums was already released in 2009 😉
From 2010 to about 2015 we played our most gigs. That was the best time in our lives, we were teenagers, just like you now 👍🏻😉

Well, we played of course our own songs. (We sound pretty much like the bands on the video i copied above in the comments).
Man, we lazy assholes should have really record some of our songs... 🤦🏻‍♂️😂
And we also do loads of covers.
For example Basket Case from Green Day, songs from The Ramones or The Cure, etc ...
People always loved when we did covers lol

Biggest irony is worrying about things..when you know you will lose everything in the end.

It's more sad than ironic that her real life was so much more disturbing than in this video - her depression, eating disorders, statutory rapes when she was a young teen, etc. Hopefully she has recovered from all the pain she has suffered.

When I hear this song it brings back memories of my mother. My mom had me young so we kind of grew up together in a way. I remember us going down the road in her camery she would be in her bathing suit and we would be going to the river or lake and this song would come on and she would sing it at the top of her lungs. Eventually I knew the words and would be singing with her even though I was a kid. She was beautiful and always kept men's attention, that also brought her a lot of trouble. She died when I was 15. I miss her everyday she did the best she could being a young single mother.

Justin each time you sing I’m sure she’s smiling .Keep her legacy and sing your heart out.
