Alanis Morissette's, "Ironic"
The Lyrics:
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
As the plane crashed down, "Well, isn't this nice?"
And isn't it ironic, don't you think?
According to plane rides, even though Mr. Play-It-Safe suffered from aviaphobia, acrophobia, macrophobia and claustrophobia, doesn't mean he was leaving from town to town.

Alanis Morissette's, "Ironic"
The Lyrics:
Traffic jam, when you're already late.
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break.
It's like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife.
It's like meeting the man of my dreams, and then meeting his beautiful wife.
And isn't it ironic, don't you think?
A little too ironic, yeah I really do think.
This song is mostly an unlucky song. Bugs in your wine, your planes crashes, and you thought you found a true love but the lover is married! Yeah real bad luck.
