“A Clean, Well-Lighted Place”

05 Mar

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 weddin’ 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 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 weddin’ 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 figures

Well life has a funny way of sneakin’ up on you
When you think everything’s okay and everything’s goin’ right, right
And life has a funny way nobody helpin’ you out when
You think everyhing’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 meetin’ the man of my dreams
And then meetin’ his beautiful wife, umm
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 weddin’ 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 figures

And well, life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
And life has a funny, funny way of helpin’ you out
Helpin’ you out
