Lyrics

play An old man turned ninety-eight
play He won the lottery and died the next day
play It's a black fly in your Chardonnay
play It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
play Isn't it ironic, don't you think?

play It's like rain on your wedding day
play It's a free ride when you've already paid
play It's the good advice that you just didn't take
play And who would've thought it, it figures

play Mr. play-it-safe was afraid to fly
play He packed his suitcase
play and kissed his kids good-bye
play He waited his whole damn life
play to take that flight
play And as the plane crashed down
play he thought "Well isn't this nice"
play And isn't it ironic, don't you think?

play It's like rain on your wedding day
play It's a free ride when you've already paid
play It's the good advice that you just didn't take
play And who would've thought it, it figures

play Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
play When you think everything's okay
play and everything's going right
play And life has a funny way of helping you out when
play You think everything's gone wrong
play and everything blows up in your face

play A traffic jam when you're already late
play A "No Smoking" sign on your cigarette break
play It's like ten thousand spoons
play when all you need is a knife
play It's meeting the man of my dreams,
play and then meeting his beautiful wife
play And isn't it ironic, don't you think?
play A little too ironic,
play and yeah I really do think

play It's like rain on your wedding day
play It's a free ride when you've already paid
play It's the good advice that you just didn't take
play And who would've thought it, it figures

play Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
play Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
play Helping you out
