An old man turned ninety-eight
        D/F#  Gadd9   D/F#           Em7
He won the lottery and died the next day
      D/F#   Gadd9  D/F#       Em7 
It's a black fly in your chardonnay
       D/F#      Gadd9      D/F#        Em7

Isn't it ironic... don't you think

[chorus]
         D/F# G    D/F#        Em7
It's like rain on your wedding day
           D/F# G            D/F#    Em7
It's a free ride when you've already paid
              D/F# G          D/F#        Em7
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
    Fm           Cadd9           D/F#

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
              D/F# Gadd9              D/F#      Em7
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids good-bye
              D/F#       Gadd9   D/F#      Em7
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
           D/F#         Gadd9                  D/F#        Em7
And as the plane crashed down he thought, well isn't this nice
               D/F# Gadd9           D/F#      Em7
And Isn't this ironic ... don't you think?

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
                       Dadd9*Dadd9 Cadd9               Dadd9
When you think everything's ok and everythings going right
Dadd9*Dadd9   Cadd9                               Dadd9  
And yeah well life has a funny way of helping you out when

  D/F#    Gadd9           D/F#     Em7
A traffic jam when you're already late

A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break

It's meeting the man of my dreams then meeting his beautiful wife
             D/F# Gadd9          D/F#     Em7
And isn't it ironic... don't you think
             D/F# Gadd9           D/F#     Em7
A little too ironic.. and yeah I really do think...

[chorus]
         D/F# G    D/F#        Em7
It's like rain on your wedding day
           D/F# G            D/F#    Em7
It's a free ride when you've already paid
              D/F# G          D/F#        Em7
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
