Time to feel old, because ‘Ironic’ by former Canadian God Alanis Morissette is about to turn twenty years old. Even though it is a song about misfortune rather than irony (as I’m sure it is aware to most people) it’s at least a great song about annoyances in life.
To celebrate I’m going to break out the songwriting handbook and have a stab at rewriting the lyrics. My rhymes and phrasings may be more Sondheim and Starkey but when has that ever stopped anyone?
So, to the tune of Ironic…Annoyance.
