James Corden continued to prove his amazing adorableness when he invited Alanis Morissette onto the Late Late Show to sing some updated lyrics for “Ironic,” her hit song from the 90s. The best part of this all is how much of a great sport Morissette is, and how she’s actually totally still got some amazing vocal skills.

Check out some of these updated lyrics:

It’s like swiping left
on your future soulmate
It’s a Snapchat
that you wish you had saved
It’s a funny tweet
that nobody faves

Oof. I really feel that last one. Really, I do. But the best updated lyric:

It’s ten thousand male late night hosts
when all you want is just one woman, seriously
