Alanis Morissette – You Oughta Know

Of the mess you left when you went away
And I’m here, to remind you
To be open wide, no
‘Til you died, but you’re still alive
I hate to bug you in the middle of dinner
It’s not fair, to deny me
Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
Well, can you feel it?
You seem very well, things look peaceful
Down someone else’s back I hope you feel it

You’d hold me until you died
That was me and I’m not gonna fade
And are you thinking of me when you fuck her?
‘Cause the love that you gave that we made
And every time you speak her name
Is she perverted like me?
And every time I scratch my nails
To be open wide, no
Does she know how you told me
Does she speak eloquently
I want you to know, that I am happy for you
It’s not fair, to deny me

‘Cause the love that you gave that we made
You, you, you oughta know
‘Cause the joke that you laid in the bed
Did you forget about me, Mr. Duplicity?
Of the mess you left when you went away

An older version of me
And I’m here, to remind you
Does she know how you told me
Would she go down on you in a theater?
You, you, you oughta know
Wasn’t able to make it enough for you
You, you, you oughta know
And every time you speak her name
Wasn’t able to make it enough for you
And I’m here, to remind you
It’s not fair, to deny me
I wish nothing but the best for you both
You’d hold me until you died
And would she have your baby?
As soon as you close your eyes, and you know it

I’m not quite as well, I thought you should know
Of the mess you left when you went away

Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
Of the cross I bear that you gave to me

It was a slap in the face
I’m sure she’d make a really excellent mother
‘Til you died, but you’re still alive
How quickly I was replaced
