Ironic

An old man
Turned 98
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 weddin’ 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 weddin’ 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 sneakin’ up on you when you think
Everything’s okay
And everything’s goin’ right
And life has a funny way
Of helpin’ you out when you think
Everything’s gone wrong
And everything blows up in your face
It’s 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 meetin’ the man of my dreams
And then meetin’ his beautiful wife
And isn’t it ironic
Don’t you think
A little too ironic
Yeah I really do think
It’s like rain
On your weddin’ 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
Life has a funny way
Sneaking up on you
Life has a funny funny way
Helpin’ you out
Helpin’ you out
