The Lyrics

Note that I'm an anti-Alanis parodist. If you disagree, Feel free to whine and rant all you wish. I won't care. =]
Alanis Morissette wrote a song five years ago this year
It was named "Ironic"...ironically I fear
The lyrics blew; it made no sense
And people have been confused by it ever since
But perhaps I'm histrionic, would you think?

It's like pain too excruciating to say;
It's traffic on Memorial Day.
It's chockfull of your favorite clichés.
And it's 'Top 40' shit...go figure!

By definition, ironic is this-
An unexpected turn-revel in this bliss.
Had she taken the time to look up Webster.com
She might have known everything's 'unfortunate' in her goddamn song.
But perhaps I'm just histrionic...Do you think?

It's like pain too excruciating to say;
It's traffic on Memorial Day.
It's chockfull of your favorite clichés.
And it's 'Top 40' shit...go figure!

Well people have funny ways of writing bad songs
and producing them like everything's okay when nothing's going right.
And people have funny ways of writing lyrics for a song
that hardly makes sense and then they get paid anyway...

"A traffic jam when you're already late"
Perhaps the only irony in the song, and it isn't that great.
"It's like ten-thousand spoons when all you need is a knife"
I needed one for Alanis and used it on myself during strife
But perhaps I'm just histrionic...do you think?
A little too histrionic, yes, I really do think...

It's like pain too excruciating to say;
It's traffic on Memorial Day.
It's chockfull of your favorite clichés.
And it's 'Top 40' shit...go figure!

Well, people have funny ways of writing bad songs
and producing them like everything's okay
when nothing's going right.

Blethar - July 31, 2004 - Report this comment
Your pacing was a little off in places and if we always made fun of the titles of songs being irrelevant to the content...we'd make lots of fun. Still, pacing was great in some places, liked the use of the word histrionic, the fact you gave yourself self-criticism and constructive criticism to Alanis, so 4-4-5. The fact I'm an Alanis fan has nothing to do with it.
