Ironic by Alanis Morissette

An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and (1)________ the next day
It's a black fly in your Chardonnay
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
Isn't it ironic...don't you think

It's like rain on your (2)______________ day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you (3)________ didn't take
Who would've (4)______________ ... it figures

Mr. Play-It-Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and (5)____________ his kids good-bye
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 (6)________ wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought ... it figures

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything's 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

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 (7)________ is a knife
It's meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn't it ironic...don't you think
A little too ironic...and yeah I really do think...

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

Life has a funny way of (8)________________ up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of (9)______________ you out
Helping you out
