Ironic  Alanis Morissette



an [F#]old [B]man [F#]turned ninety-[G#m]eight
he won the [F#]lotte[B]ry and [F#]died the next [G#m]day
it's a [F#]black [B]fly in your [F#]chardo[G#m]nnay
it's a [F#]death row [B]pardon two [F#]minutes to [G#m]late
isn't it i[F#]ronic[B]... don't you t[F#]hink[G#m]
<> it's like [F#]rai[B]n on your [F#]wedding [G#m]day
           it's a free [F#]rid[B]e when you've [F#]already [G#m]paid
           it's the good [F#]advic[B]e that you [F#]just didn't [G#m]take
           [A]who would have [G#m]thought... it [F#]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 thought "well isn't this nice..."
and isn't it [F#]ironic[B]... don't you [F#]think?[G#m]
<> it's like [F#]rai[B]n on your [F#]wedding [G#m]day
           it's a free [F#]rid[B]e when you've [F#]already [G#m]paid
           it's the good [F#]advic[B]e that you [F#]just didn't [G#m]take
           [A]who would have [G#m]thought... it [F#]figures
well [B]life has a funny way of sneaking [F#]up on you
when you think everything is okay and [G#m]everything's going right
and l[B]ife has a funny way of helping y[F#]ou out when
you think everything's gone wrong and [G#m]everything blows up in your face
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
and isn't it [F#]ironic.[B].. don't you [F#]think?[G#m]
a little too [F#]ironic.[B].. and yeah i [F#]really do think.[G#m]..
