Alanis Morissette – You Oughta Know

I want you to know

That I’m happy for you

I wish nothing but

The best for you both

An older version of me is she perverted like me

Would she go down on you in a theatre

Does she speak eloquently

And would she have your baby

I’m sure she’d make a really excellent mother

‘Cause the love that you gave that we made

Wasn’t able to make it enough for you to be open wide, no

And every time you speak her name

Does she know how you told me you’d hold me

Until you died, ’till you die

But you’re still alive

And I’m here to remind you

Of the mess you left when you went away

It’s not fair to deny me

Of the cross I bear that you gave to me

You, you, you oughta know

You seem very well, things look peaceful

I’m not quite as well, I thought you should know

Did you forget about me Mr. Duplicity

I hate to bug you in the middle of dinner

It was a slap in the face how quickly I was replaced

Are you thinking of me when you fuck her

‘Cause the love that you gave that we made

Wasn’t able to make it enough for you to be open wide, no

And every time you speak her name

Does she know how you told me you’d hold me

Until you died, ’till you die

But you´re still alive

And I’m here to remind you

Of the mess you left when you went away

It’s not fair to deny me

Of the cross I bear that you gave to me

You, you, you oughta know

‘Cause the joke that you laid in the bed that was me

And I´m not gonna fade as soon as you close your eyes (And you know it)

And every time I scratch my nails down someone else´s back

I hope you feel it

Well can you feel it?

Well, I’m here to remind you

Of the mess you left when you went away

It’s not fair to deny me

Of the cross I bear that you gave to me

You, you, you oughta know

I’m here to remind you

Of the mess you left when you went away

It’s not fair to deny me

Of the cross I bear that you gave to me

You, you, you oughta know

    I remember when I was at school and I was about 13-years-old and we had a band. And we had a visiting teacher who brought this song with him and taught us to play it. After playing Help by The Beatles and stuff like that it was awesome! Great memories this song will bring to my mind…
