"Richard Cory" was first a famous poem, then a Paul Simon song.  Every year in class my students gasp at the irony in the final lines. 

I love theonion.com for all my irony needs!

Another website that could be useful is www.flocabulary.com/figurative-language. They take different songs and such and show you the "word play". Hope this helps.

 

There are so many of these all over the web.  Here is just a few, with one of my own favorite examples thrown in:
