"Ironic" - post Roe v. Wade

* New verses by Brianna Jaris; Original chorus and verse by Alanis Morissette


A young girl, used to dance ballet

She won the spelling bee, raped the next day

It’s a protest, with no real change

Her body's not her own, her doom prearranged

and 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 And who would've thought... it figures


Ms. Jane Doe, was a brave young girl

She took a free-throw, but kept her lace and pearls

She fought her damn whole life, for equal rights

And as the law came down, she thought “where is our fight?”

And 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 And who would've thought... it figures


Well, life has a funny way of sneaking up on you When you think everything's okay and everything's going right And life has a funny way of helping you out When you think everything's gone wrong And everything blows up in your face


No abortion pills, when your period’s late

A “Pro Life” sign, at the clinic gates It’s all lockdowns and drills, when all you want is a school It's protecting the guns of the right While burying the overruled


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 And who would've thought... it figures
