When you think everything's okay...

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
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've thought ... it figures

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
Repeat Chorus

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

It's a traffic jam when you're already late
It's 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
A little too ironic... and yeah I really do think...

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out


  1. 嗯...我倒不覺歌詞到底有多IRONIC,倒是不幸成份居多.特別那句'it's meeting the man of my dreams, and then meeting his beautiful wife' 那是相當的不幸!

  2. Yes. I think since the song's inception. Many ppl has said it should be called "unlucky" instead.

  3. That was a MOTHERFUCKING SHAME to our ole dear Alma Mater.

    God I hope those guys get shamed into working harder and win the fucking Big Ten champ.

    BTW I think you know what ironic is. It pains me greatly to say this, but this time is more like cockiness, self-indulgence and snobbery.

    GOD DAMN IT!!!!!11111ONE


    "Caitlin Upton, the freshly famous Miss Teen South Carolina, whose dingbat answer to a beauty pageant question became an instant YouTube classic, told Matt Lauer she planned to attend Appalachian State."

    I wonder what she did to the football team?

  5. How do you think of 三林(3938)?

  6. Well... Can't believe I will be saying this in september...

    There's always next year...
