C'est la vie!
Life couldn't follow your wishes all the time.
Try to see on the bright side.
Convince myself that
I'm really a lucky guy.
At least still being alive.
Alanis interprets it really well.
I recommend her a lot.
Sort of Avril..but better..^^

Ironic
artist: Alanis Morissette
lyrist/composer: Alanis Morissette

An old man turned ninety-eight
有個老人轉眼間九十八歲
He won the lottery and died the next day
他中了樂透但隔天就死翹翹
It's a black fly in your chardonnay
就像是有隻黑蒼蠅在你的一杯法國紅酒裡
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
也像是遲了二分鐘的死刑赦免
Isn't it ironic... don't you think
這很諷刺……不是嗎?

Chorus:
It's like rain on your wedding day
就像是你的婚禮那天下大雨
It's a free ride when you've already paid
就像有人要載你 但你剛剛買了車票
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
就像是應該接受的忠告 而你剛好不理睬
Who would've thought... it figures
誰又想得到……人算不如天算

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
安全第一先生很怕坐飛機
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids good-bye
有一天他收拾了行李跟孩子們吻別
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
他等了整整一輩子終於要來坐人生第一趟飛機
And as the plane crashed down he thought
當飛機失事快墜毀的當下,他心裡這麼想
"Well, isn't this nice."
「喔,這實在是太好了!」
And Isn't this ironic ... don't you think?
這真諷刺啊……你不覺得嗎?

Repeat Chorus

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
生活就是會莫名其妙地偷偷地搞你一下
When you think everything's ok and everythings going right
當你認為一切都沒有問題,事情進行都很順利的時候
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
生活也會莫名其妙悄悄幫你一把
You think evertyhing's gone wrong and everthing blows up
In your face
當你覺得你倒楣到家,一切都已經在你眼前搞砸了的時候

A traffic jam when you're already late
已經遲到了你還遇上交通堵塞
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
可以休息抽菸的時候,偏偏禁止吸菸
It's like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife
就像是有上萬支湯匙但你需要的只是一把刀子
It's meeting the man of my dreams
就像是終於遇見你的夢中王子
and then meeting his beautiful wife
同時還看到他身旁的美麗妻子
And isn't it ironic... don't you think
這真是諷刺……你不覺得嗎?
A little too ironic.. and yeah I really do think...
有點太諷刺了……是啊,我相信

Repeat Chorus

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
我想,生活就是會莫名其妙地偷偷地捉弄你一下
And life has a funny way of helping you out
helping you out
生活也會莫名其妙悄悄幫你一把
