Ironic by Alanis Morrisete

(Hey yeah yeah...)

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 weddin' day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you (2)________ didn't take
And who would've thought, it figures
Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
He (3)____________ his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the (4)__________ crashed down he thought
Well, isn't this nice...
And isn't it ironic
Don't you think?
It's like rain on your weddin' day
It's a free ride when you've (5)______________ paid
It's the good advice that you (6)________ didn't take
And who would've thought, it figures
Well life has a funny way
Of sneakin' up on you
When you think everything's okay
And everything's goin' right, right...
And life has a funny way
Nobody helpin' you out
When you think everything's gone wrong
And (7)____________________ 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 (8)________________ spoons
When all you need is a knife
It's meeting the man of my dreams
And then meetin' his (9)__________________ 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 weddin' day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you (10)________ didn't take
And who would've thought, it figures...
And your life has a funny way
Of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way
Of helping you out
Helping you out
