Ironic
by Alanis Morissette

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

I'm so emotional. This 4K restoration is MAGIC. It was shot in 1996 and looks like it was shot yesterday. The power of film. Thank you.

Anderson Telles

Me too, feeling so emotional and happy at the same time!!! Can't explain, thanks a lot for the people who worked to became this possible.

Sean Webb

3ver 4fter Not really. Many were shot on film then converted to video for TV. Even news was originally shot on film and converted to video early on.

What are you talking about?!...Most music videos in the 80s until the 2000s were shot on film!...Havent you seen all the new 4k music videos from these years that are being released these days??!...There is no such thing as 'shooting on video'!...Back in the day everything was shot on film

BeautyCool

What? Really? I only just discovered this song a few days ago through the Remzee remix. I literally thought this was shot in 2007. DAMN!

Scott Gordon

True, but it doesn't fix Alanis' misconception of irony.
