Isn't it Ironic... don't you think?

Assalamualaikum.


Suddenly i remember one of my practical teacher that taught English when i am in form four. He's also an ex-student from my school. I still remember when we were learning literature titled The Necklace by Guy de Maupassant, the most important thing that he highlighted was the presence of Ironic in life. That was the first time i know what irony is about. Then, when i looked back through my life before, i found that, ah, how ironic... my life that is. And i've fallen in love with this song, introduced by my teacher even until now.



Ironic - Alanis Morissette

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
And 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 goodbye
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

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

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

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
A little too ironic...and, yeah, I really do 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

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

Just look thoroughly into the lyric, if you don't know what is irony. You'll understand the idea. And don't forget to check out this song. It's a beautiful song.
