[Intro]

Cmaj7      D6?         Cmaj7        D**
            Hi yi yi---  yi yi yi yi yi yi


[Verse]

  D/F# G D/F#         Em7
An old man turned ninety-eight   
          D/F#  G   D/F#          Em7
He won the lottery and died the next day
       D/F#  G       D/F#    Em7
It´s a black fly in your Chardonnay
       D/F#      G        D/F#       Em7
It´s a death row pardon two minutes too late
        D/F# G              D/F#  Em7
Isn´t it ironic ... don´t you think 


[Chorus]

         D   G         D       Em7
It´s like rain on your wedding day
            D  G             D       Em7
It´s a free ride when you´ve already paid
              D  G            D           Em7
It´s the good advice that you just didn´t take
    F          C                  Dsus 
Who would ´ve thought ... it figures 


[Verse]

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids good-bye
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 


[Chorus]

         D   G         D       Em7
It´s like rain on your wedding day
            D  G             D       Em7
It´s a free ride when you´ve already paid
              D  G            D           Em7
It´s the good advice that you just didn´t take
    F          C                  Dsus 
Who would ´ve thought ... it figures 


[Bridge]

      Cmaj7                              D6?
Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
                                    Cmaj7                     D6?
When you think everything´s okay and everything´s going right 
     Cmaj7                              D6?
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
                                       Cmaj7                  D6?
You think everything´s gone wrong and everything blows up
             D**
In your face


[Verse 3]

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
And isn´t it ironic ... don´t you think
        D   /F# G                    D/F#  Em7
A little too ironic ... and yeah I really do think ...


[Chorus]

         D   G         D       Em7
It´s like rain on your wedding day
            D  G             D       Em7
It´s a free ride when you´ve already paid
              D  G            D           Em7
It´s the good advice that you just didn´t take
    F          C                  Dsus 
Who would ´ve thought ... it figures 


[Outro]

      Cmaj7                              D6?
Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
      Cmaj7                D6?               Cmaj7
Life has a funny, funny way --- of helping you out
         
Helping you out
