    Lyrics

    Hey-aye-aye, yo
    Ooh-whoa oh, oh, yeah, aye

    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 death row pardon two minutes too late
    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've thought? It figures

    Mr. Play-It-Safe was afraid to fly
    He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye-aye
    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 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'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 need is a knife
    It's meeting the man of my dreams
    And then meeting his beautiful wife, hmph
    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
    And who would've thought? It figures

    And yeah, oh, life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
    Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
    Helping you out
