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

Isn't it ironic to watch a 90's video in 4k?

Dularr

@PeckyThePigeon That she is Canadian. While everyone is bashing on Americans.

Dularr

@PeckyThePigeon Considering she is Canadian. Now that is ironic.

Dularr

@PeckyThePigeon That is the point. Everyone recognized very little if anything in the song is ironic.

The 90's wasn't a decade it was an emotion

Thomas R

Totally not an emotion change especially great change alters memory depending on your response to the change and time gone by. You had an emotional 90s some people didn't emapthize with the other generations that have said there golden year's where the same to them.... Be the golden years of the new generations. Apathy's a tragedy and boredom is a crime.

@M Hurley886 say it louder for the people in the back 📣
