You Oughta Know Lyrics - Alanis Morissette

Review The Song (3)



I want you to know 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 theater
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, 'til you died
But you're still alive

Chorus:
And I'm here to remind you
sponsored links
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
And are you're 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, 'til you died
But you're still alive

Repeat Chorus

'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

Repeat Chorus (2x)

perfect | Reviewer: miika | 9/3/10

This song is so perfect right now. I have it on repeat because it fits my life so well. My boyfriend/fiancee of two years left me for a 30yr old woman (who works at waffle house and lives with her mother) I'm 17, he's 18. She's 30. He cheated and lied and then left for her. So this song is perfect because it is exactly how I feel right now. I gave him everything (and I'm pregnant with his child) and he replaced me with 'an older version of me'



Cross-eyed bear | Reviewer: Nell | 7/15/07

Watch out for the line "Of the cross I bear that you gave to me ", sounds distinctly like “Of the cross-eyed bear that you gave to me”. I’ve been singing that line for years, though never really understood her desire for her ‘cross-eyed bear’ to be returned.



And I'm here to remind you... | Reviewer: Alyssa | 3/8/07

I really like that song, I think it's about Alanis breakin' up with her ex-boyfriend Full House star Dave Coulier, I could shout "You, you, you oughta know", It's really a break-up song.
