Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


You Oughta Know  Alanis Morissette



[Gm]  I want you to know that I'm happy for you.
I wish nothing but the [C] best for you both.
An older v[Gm]ersion of me;
Is she preverted like me?
Would she go d[C]own on you in a theatre?
Does she speak el[Gm]oquently?
And would she have your baby?
I'm sure sh[C]e'd make a really excellent mother.

[Gm] 'Cause the love that you gave that we made
wasn't able to make it enough for you to be [C] open wide. No!
And [Gm] everytime you speak her name
does she know how you told me you'd hold me
un[C]til you died? `Til you died,
but you're still alive.

Chorus:
[C] And I'm [G] here to re[F]mind you
of the [Bb] mess you left when you [C] went away.
It's not [G] fair to de[F]ny me
of the [Bb] cross I bare that you [C] gave to me.
You, you, you oughta [G] know.

[Gm] You seem very well, things look peaceful.
I'm not quite as well. I th[C]ought you should know.
Did you f[Gm]orget about me, Mr. Duplicity?
I hate to b[C]ug you in the middle of dinner.
It was a sl[Gm]ap in the face how quickly I was replaced.
Are you th[C]inking of me when you fuck her?

[Gm] 'Cause the love that you gave that we made
wasn't able to make it enough for you to be [C] open wide. No!
And [Gm] everytime you speak her name
does she know how you told me you'd hold me
un[C]til you died? `Til you died,
but you're still alive.

Chorus

Interlude:
(You need to listen to the album to get this part right vocally.
It1s moaning and sighing with an 3Ahhh2 sound
It should be repeated about 4 times, gaining speed each time):
G F C Gmodal

[Gm] Cause the joke that you laid in the bed that was me,
and I'm not gonna fade
as soon as you cl[C]ose your eyes, and you know it.
And [Gm] everytime I scratch my nails down someone else's back
I hope you f[C]eel it. Can you feel it?

Chorus

Why...
