Alanis Morissette - Ironic


Key: F#

Capo 6 – Play C


     C/E F     C/E              Dm7

An old  man turned ninety-eight

     C/E             F        C/E              Dm7

He won the lottery and died the next day

        C/E   F      C/E             Dm7

It's a black fly in your Chardonnay

        C/E         F               C/E            Dm7

It's a death row pardon two minutes too late

          C/E F               C/E Dm7

Isn't it ironic, don't you think


                 C F           C           Dm7

* It's like rain   on your wedding day

              C  F                  C         Dm7

It's a free ride when you've already paid

                      C   F            C            Dm7

It's the good advice that you just didn't take

Eb                Bb              C

Who would've thought, it figures


     C/E      F              C/E     Dm7

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly

                      C/E F                           C/E             Dm7

He packed his suit case and kissed his kids good-bye

                    C/E             F       C/E        Dm7

He waited his whole damn life to take that flight

                 C/E                F                                C/E       Dm7

And as the plane crashed down he thought "Well, isn't this nice"

                 C/E F               C/E Dm7

And isn't it ironic, don't you think *


        Bbmaj7                                         C

Well, life has a funny way of sneaking up on you

                                                       Bbmaj7                      C  

when you think everything's okay And everything's going right

       Bbmaj7                                        C

And life has a funny way of helping you out

                                                                 Bbmaj7                                   C

when you think everything's gone wrong And everything blows up In your face


   C/E   F                       C/E      Dm7

A traffic jam when you're already late

        C/E        F                C/E        Dm7

A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break

           C/E              F                             C/E        Dm7

It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife

     C/E                             F                                         C/E        Dm7

It's meeting the man of my dreams And then meeting his beautiful wife

                 C/E F              C/E Dm7

And isn't it ironic, don't you think

                 C/E F                C/E        Dm7

A little too ironic, and yeah I really do think *


Bbmaj7 C                      Bbmaj7                                             C

               And you know life has a funny way of sneaking up on you

Bbmaj7                    C                  Bbmaj7

Life has a funny way of helping you out Helping you out
