Verse:
    Gb  B   Gb              Abm
An old man  turned ninety-eight   
            Gb   B      Gb            Abm
He won the lottery and died the next day
       Gb     B          Gb        Abm
It´s a black fly in your  Chardonnay
       Gb         B          Gb           Abm
It´s a death row pardon two minutes too late
          Gb    B  Gb               Abm
Isn´t it ironic ... don´t you think 

Chorus:
         Gb   B         Gb       Abm
It´s like rain on your wedding day
            Gb  B             Gb       Abm
It´s a free ride when you´ve already paid
              Gb  B            Gb           Abm
It´s the good advice that you just didn´t take
    A          E                  Gb 
Who would´ve thought ... it figures 

Verse:
   Gb        B       Gb         Abm
Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
   Gb          B            Gb              Abm
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids good-bye
              Gb          B       Gb         Abm
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
           Gb             B                     
And as the plane crashed down he thought
Gb                  Abm
" Well isn´t this nice ... "
              Gb    B  Gb               Abm
And isn´t it ironic ... don´t you think 

Chorus:
         Gb   B         Gb       Abm
It´s like rain on your wedding day
            Gb  B             Gb       Abm
It´s a free ride when you´ve already paid
              Gb  B            Gb           Abm
It´s the good advice that you just didn´t take
    A          E                  Gb 
Who would´ve thought ... it figures 

Bridge:
      Emaj7                  Gb 
Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
                            Emaj7                       Gb
When you think everything´s okay and everything´s going right 
     Emaj7                  Gb
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
                                       Emaj7                  
You think everything´s gone wrong and everything blows up
         Gb
In your face

Verse:
  Gb       B              Gb         Abm
a traffic jam when you´re  already late
     Gb       B            Gb        Abm
a no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
          Gb            B                  Gb         Abm
It´s like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
                  Gb        B       
It´s meeting the man of my dreams
                     Gb         Abm
And then meeting his beautiful wife
              Gb    B  Gb               Abm
And isn´t it ironic ... don´t you think
        Gb     B                    Gb        Abm
a little too ironic ... and yeah I really do think ...

Chorus:
         Gb   B         Gb       Abm
It´s like rain on your wedding day
            Gb  B             Gb       Abm
It´s a free ride when you´ve already paid
              Gb  B            Gb           Abm
It´s the good advice that you just didn´t take
    A          E                  Gb 
Who would´ve thought ... it figures

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Emaj7                              Gb         Emaj7
Life has a funny, funny way --- of helping you out
         
Helping you out
