Alanis Morisette

Alanis Morisette's, "Ironic"
Better Lyrics:

An old van, with a radiator grate
carrying pottery, and parked by the bay
with a, fat guy, in a pink beret
eating grizzle and lard, and fries when he was late

and isn't it moronic
don't ya think?

it's like rain, when you wanted snow
a motor boat, when you thought you would row
brownie mix, when you want cookie dough

and who would say 'it figgers'?
(damn canadians!
Original Lyrics:
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 two late

and isn't it ironic
don't ya think
it's like rain, or your wedding day
it's a free ride, when you've already paid
it's the good advice, that you just didn't take
and who would've thought, it figgers (figures)
