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

Heyeyeyey!
Yeeaah, yehey!
An old man,
died the next day.
He won the lottery,
and turned 98.
It's an old man,
in your Chardonnay.
It's a death-row pardon,
in your Chardonnay.
And isn't it ironic,
dont you think?...

I disagree, this year has been quite amazing, and will continue to be so. Within this year I've found that soulmates really do exist, and love and positivity can be found in anything and everything, this year my view on life has been changed in it's entirety.
My pre-2021 non conclusive view on this year so far is that God is Real, True, Loving, Caring, Fair, Determined, and an amazingly wondrous ultraphysical being of true Light and peace.
When you realize that God has always been here waiting for us to talk to him and Actually listen for his answers, and finally understand that everything set in order here in his universe is created by his spiritual order without sparing a single one of us from the structure of the infinite web of his undying love and light, and 'catch' the wisdom (that follows closely behind) of the true power received through good intentions and love for our Creator, it just happens to be able to give us, a spec of sand (compared to the ones before us) a metaphysical form beyond "sight" with the eventual ability to move mountains. Yet the most meaningful thing to me so far is every hour I live on this plane of existence God has given many signs accessable by anyone and everyone that will always lead to the best outcomes as long as we treat him the way we should, as we are all a part of him.
God's Love, Peace, and Truth in abundance to all who read this in his True spirit, and to any Elect who read this, Feel free to reply, and God bless The 144,000 in all positivity in true abundance, and know you're always near the presence of your brethren

Lyrics

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
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
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
Helping you out

This song makes so much more sense to me, now that I'm older.

Funnily enough to me, it makes less sense the older you get.

​@Jeremiah Meeks ironic is an euphemism in this specific case, don't you think ;-)

Its quite a shame that you don't know what a masterpiece consists of.. "stairway to heaven"," Lateralus " , "Bohemian Rhapsody" (list is long so I'll stop there) are masterpieces..just because a song is catchy doesn't make it a masterpiece!, it just makes it a good song!
