Lyric:

An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery
and died the next day
It's a black fly in your chardonnay
It's a dead row pardon
two minutes too late
Isn't it ironic
don't you 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 have thought? It figures
Mister play-it-safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase
and kissed his kids goodbye
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 ironic... don't you 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
And who would have 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 blow up in your face
A traffic jam when you're already late
A no-smoking side 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 ironic, don't you think?
A little too ironic,
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
And who would have thought, it figures
Life has a funny way
of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way
of helping you out, helping you out
