Alanis Morissette - Ironic 1995

 
"Ironic" adalah lagu penyanyi Kanada Alanis Morissette. Singel ini dikeluarkan pada bulan Februari 1996 sebagai single ketiga dari album studio ketiganya, Jagged Little Pill (1995). 

Album ini ditulis oleh Morissette dan Glen Ballard, dan diproduksi olehnya. Liriknya menyajikan beberapa situasi yang digambarkan sebagai "ironis"; Hal ini menimbulkan perdebatan mengenai apakah semua hal ini benar-benar sesuai dengan makna ironi yang diterima.


An old man turned 98He won the lottery and died the next dayIt's a black fly in your ChardonnayIt's a death row pardon two minutes too lateAnd isn't it ironic, don't you think?
It's like rain on your wedding dayIt's a free ride when you've already paidIt's the good advice that you just didn't takeAnd who would've thought, it figures
Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to flyHe packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbyeHe waited his whole damn life to take that flightAnd 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 your wedding dayIt's a free ride when you've already paidIt's the good advice that you just didn't takeAnd who would've thought, it figures
Well, life has a funny way of sneaking up on youWhen you think everything's okay and everything's going rightAnd life has a funny way of helping you outWhen you think everything's gone wrong and everything blows upIn your face
A traffic jam when you're already lateA no-smoking sign on your cigarette breakIt's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knifeIt's meeting the man of my dreamsAnd then meeting his beautiful wifeAnd isn't it ironic, don't you think?A little too ironicAnd, yeah, I really do think
It's like rain on your wedding dayIt's a free ride when you've already paidIt's the good advice that you just didn't takeAnd who would've thought, it figures
And, yeah, life has a funny way of sneaking up on youLife has a funny, funny way of helping you outHelping you out
