Moronic
(Rewrite)


original lyrics, Alanis Morissette: Ironic 

An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It's a black fly in your chardonnay
It's a death row pardon two minutes too late
Isn't it ironic... don't you think
It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures
Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids good-bye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
Well, isn't this nice
And Isn't this ironic ... don't you think?
It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures
Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything's oka and everythings going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think evertyhing's gone wrong and everthing blows up
In your face
A 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 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.. and yeah I really do think...
It's like rain on your wedding day
It's a free ride when you've already paid
It's the good advice that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures
Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
And life has a funny way of helping you out
Helping you out

An old woman, crossing the street
Knocked her into the mud, cause I hurried to eat
It's a sac fly, I jumped over your seat
It's the sexist comment I had to repeat
Isn't it moronic… don't you think

CHORUS:
It's a pain, all the things that I say
It's like please won't you just go away
It's the bad advice, that you happened to take
I didn't think, I never

In the hospital, afraid to die
I made sarcastic jokes of your fragile life
If you didn't last, I'd laugh at your funeral
And as your family mourns, I said
'I didn't like him.'
And isn't it moronic…don't you think

Well I have a funny way of sneaking up on you
I just get under your skin and make you wanna scream
And I have a funny way of ticking you off when
You think you're a step away from your life blowing up in your face

A traffic jam I caused by no mistake
It's a no smoking sign, but I'll smoke anyway
It's like 10,000 worlds I make collide in your head
It's God sending down His perfect son
That I then hung up high and left for dead
Isn't it moronic…don't you think
A little too moronic…And yeah I'm really that thick

Well I have a funny way of sneaking up on you
And I have a funny way of ticking you off
Ticking you off
