What does Ironic mean?

Ironic German translation

Ironic Lyrics translation

An old man turned 98
He won the lottery and died the next day
There is a black fly in your Chardonnay
It's a pardon after a death sentence, two minutes late
Isn't that ironic? Do not you think?

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride if you've already paid
It's the good advice you just didn't take
And who could have guessed that he was right

Mister "Play it safe" was afraid of flying
He packed his suitcase and kissed his children goodbye
He had waited his whole damned life for this flight
And when the plane crashed, he thought, "Great ..."
And isn't that ironic? Do not you think?


It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride if you've already paid
It's the good advice you just didn't take
And who could have guessed that he was right

Well, life has a weird way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything is okay and everything is going well
And life has a strange way of helping you out
When you think everything is going wrong and everything is going to blow your mind

A traffic jam if you're running late anyway
A "no smoking" sign on your cigarette break
It's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
It's like meeting the man of my dreams
And then his beautiful wife
And isn't that ironic? What do you think?
A little too ironic, and yeah, I really think so

It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride if you've already paid
It's the good advice you just didn't take
And who could have guessed that he was right


And yes, life has a weird way of sneaking up on you
And life has a weird, weird way of helping you
To help you further
