Verse 1:    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[F#] your chardo[G#m]nnay
            It\'s a[F#] death row[B] pardon two[F#] minutes to[G#m] late
            And isn\'t it[F#] ironic..[B].  Don\'t yo[F#]u think[G#m]?
Chorus:   It\'s like r[F#]ain[B]   on your[F#] wedding[G#m] day
           It\'s a free[F#] ri[B]de when you\'v[F#]e alread[G#m]y paid
           It\'s the good[F#] ad[B]vice that you[F#] just didn\'[G#m]t take
           And [A]who would have [G#m]thought...  It fig[F#]ures?
                                    Verse 2:  Mr. [F#]Play-It-[B]Safe was a[F#]fraid to [G#m]fly
          He packed his [F#]suit[B]case and kissed his [F#]kids good[G#m]bye
He waited his whole *** [F#]life just t[B]o take that f[F#]light     [G#m]
          And as the [F#]plane [B]crashed down he thought, \"well[F#] isn\'t thi[G#m]s nice?\"
          And isn\'t it [F#]ironic[B]... Don\'t yo[F#]u think[G#m]?
Chorus: (Repeat chorus as before)


Bridge: (Play the intro 1 rhythm throughout this part)
Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything is 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


Verse 3: F# B F# G#m
A traffic jam when you are already late

          A no-[F#]smoking [B]sign on your [F#]cigarette [G#m]break

          It\'s like[F#] ten thousand[B] spoons when all you[F#] need is a[G#m] knife
(No instruments on these last two lines)
It\'s like meeting the man of my dreams

And then meeting his beautiful wife

          And isn\'t it [F#]ironic[B]...  Don\'t yo[F#]u think[G#m]?

           A little [F#]too ir[B]onic...  And yeah I[F#] really do[G#m] think...
Chorus: (Repeat chorus as before)
Coda: (Play the intro 1 rhythm throughout this part)

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you

Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out... Helping you out

(Cymbals and ending on guitars)
