Track Info

[Verse]
D G D Em An old man turned ninety-eight
D G He won the lottery and

D Em
Died the next day
D G D Em It´s a black fly in your Chardonnay
D G It´s a death row pardon

D Em
Two minutes too late
D G D Em Isn´t it ironic ... don´t you think [Chorus]
D G D Em It´s like rain on your wedding day
D G It´s a free ride when

D Em
You´ve already paid
D G It´s the good advice that

D Em
You just didn´t take
F C D Who would´ve thought ... it figures
[Verse] D G D Em Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
D G He packed his suitcase and

D Em
kissed his kids good-bye
D He waited his whole damn

G D Em
Life to take that flight
D G And as the plane crashed down he thought
D Em " Well isn´t this nice ... "
D G D And isn´t it ironic ...

Em
Don´t you think
[Chorus]
D G D Em It´s like rain on your wedding day

D G A traffic jam when

D Em
You´re already late
D G A no-smoking sign on

Your cigarette break

All you need is a knife
D G It´s meeting the man of my dreams
D Em And then meeting his beautiful wife
