You Oughta Know (Letra/Lyrics)

I want you to know, that I am 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

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
And 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
'Til you died, 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?

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

  • ¿Qué dijo Alanis Morissette sobre la canción You Oughta Know?

    Alanis compuso una versión acústica de la canción 10 años más tarde y expresó lo siguiente: "Cuando escucho ahora esta canción, sólo siento compasión hacia aquella parte de mí que reaccionó de aquella forma, tomándome su abandono de esa manera tan personal. Esto es algo que noto conforme me hago mayor, y es que me tomo las cosas de forma menos personal. Pero cuando tenía diecinueve años sentía que el hecho de que alguien me dejase me convertía en una persona despreciable, horrible, sin futuro y sin valor. Estaba realmente hundida. Eso es lo que veo cuando escucho o canto esta canción".
