Alanis Morisette — Ironic

F#  B   F#            G#m
An old man turned ninety-eight
F# B F# G#m
He won the lottery and died the next day
F# B F# G#m
It`s a black fly in your chardonnay
F# B F# G#m
It`s a death row pardon two minutes to late

F# B F# G#m
Isn`t it ironic... don`t you think

F# B F# G#m
Chorus: It`s like rain on your wedding day
F# B F# G#m
It`s a free ride when you`ve already paid
F# B F# G#m
It`s the good advice that you just didn`t take
A E F#
Who would have thought... it figures

Mr. play-it-safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids good-bye
He waited his whole damn life just to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thouht "well isn`t this nice..."

F# B F# G#m
And isn`t it ironic... don`t you think?

(Chorus)

B F#
Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
G#m
When you think everything is okay and everything`s going right
B F#
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
G#m
You think everything`s gone wrong and everything blows up in your face

B F# (B very short)

A traffic jam when you are 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 like meeting the man of my dreams then meeting his beautiful wife

F# B F# G#m
And isn`t it ironic... don`t you think?
F# B F# G#m
A little too ironic... and yeah i really do think...

(Chorus)

B F#
Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
B F# B
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out - helping you out
