Intro: D7M | E (x2)

E/G#   A   E/G#      F#m
An old man turned ninety-eight
E/G#        A          E/G#      F#m
He won the lottery and died the next day
E/G#         A   E/G#      F#m
It's a black fly in your Chardonnay
E/G#             A         E/G#        F#m
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late

E/G#          A                 E/G#      F#m
And isn't it ironic... Don't you think

          E     A           E       F#m
It's like raaaain on your wedding day
        E      A           E       F#m
It's a free ride when you've already paid
E           A           E       F#m
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
G           D           E      
Who would've thought... It figures

E/G#          A        E/G#      F#m
Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
        E/G#       A                 E/G#      F#m
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
        E/G#          A             E/G#      F#m
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
           E/G#          A                
And as the plane crashed down he thought
 E/G#      F#m
"Well isn't this nice..."
      E/G#     A            E/G#      F#m
And isn't it ironic... Don't you think


          E     A           E       F#m
It's like raaaain on your wedding day
        E      A           E       F#m
It's a free ride when you've already paid
E           A           E       F#m
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
G           D           E      
Who would've thought... It figures

D7M | E (x4)
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

E/G#       A                 E/G#      F#m
A traffic jam when you're already late
E/G#       A                 E/G#      F#m
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
E/G#              A                   E/G#           F#m
It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
       E/G#       A                
It's meeting the man of my dreams
         E/G#             F#m
And then meeting his beautiful wife
E/G#       A                 E/G#      F#m
And isn't it ironic... Don't you think
E/G#       A                 E/G#      F#m
A little too ironic... And, yeah, I really do think...


          E     A           E       F#m
It's like raaaain on your wedding day
        E      A           E       F#m
It's a free ride when you've already paid
E           A           E       F#m
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
G           D           E      
Who would've thought... It figures

D7M | E (x4)
Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out
