Ironic




You know I really do think.

So... for some weeks now I have thought that the theme song of the 2012 Giants is the much-maligned Ironic by Alanis Morrissette. This song gets a bad wrap, despite it's pathetically incorrect use of the titular word. See, for example,

wikipedia

Still, this song reminds me of the Giants this season, and although this song doesn't make any sense (either the original or the rewrite), neither does this season SO WITH THE CAVEAT THAT MOST OF THIS STUFF IS HARDLY "IRONIC" AT ALL (THAT'S THE JOKE) ... I give you ....

Ironic, 2012

Mr. Wilson circled the big date
He took the mound, and saw Dr. Jobe the next day
It's a dropped fly in your Perfect Game
It's a DP grounder two innings too late
And isn't it ironic... don't you think

IT'S LIKE RAAAAAAAIN ON YOUR PENNANT DAY
It's a free Scutaro to play second base
It's the pitch outside that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Nuumber 53 had never shined
He pill case and kissed KC goodbye
He waited his whole damn life to play that game
And when the test came back he thought
"Well isn't this nice..."
And isn't it ironic... don't you think

IT'S LIKE RAAAAAAAIN ON YOUR PENNANT DAY
It's a free Scutaro to play second base
It's the pitch outside 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 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

A fast ball when you're already late
A bunt sign as the curve starts to break
It's like ten thousand balls when all you need is a strike
It's meeting the Pence of my dreams
And then seeing his cra-azy eyes
And isn't it ironic...don't you think
A little too ironic...and, yeah, I really do think...

IT'S LIKE RAAAAAAAIN ON YOUR PENNANT DAY
It's a free Scutaro to play second base
It's the pitch outside that you just didn't take
Who would've thought... it figures

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out
