You Oughta Know  Alanis Morissette

I hope no one is singing this song about me ;-)
You Oughta Know
Alanis Morrissette
[B]I want you to know that [A]I'm happy for you.
[B]I wish nothing but the [A]best for you both.
[F#]Another version of me;
[A]Is she preverted like me?
[B]Would she go down on you in a [A]theatre?
[F#]Does she speak eloquently?
[A]And would she have your baby?
[B]I'm sure she'd make a really excellent [A]mother.
[B]'Cause the love that you gave that we made
[B]wasn't able to make it enough for you to be open [A]wide. No,
[B]and everytime you speak her name
[B]does she know how you told me you'd hold me
[B]until you died? `[A]Til you died,
[A]but you're still alive.
[F#]And I'm here to [E]remind you
[A]of the mess you left when you [B]went away.
[F#]It's not fair to [E]deny me
[A]of the cross I bare that you [B]gave to me.
[B]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?
( Tab from: )
Cause the love that you gave that we made
wasn't able to make it enough for you to be open wide. No,
and everytime 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.
B-A (2) , F#-A-B-A (2), (signs and moans)
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 everytime I scratch my nails down someone else's back
I hope you feel it. Can you feel it?

Subject: CRD: "You Ought to Know" by Alanis Morrisette
All right, assuming my acoustic is in tune, it seems to me that the chords
for this song are:
Verse Part:
I, fe[Gm]el happy for you.....(or something like that)
(not [C]sure how the words go)
And I'm [G]here to re-[F]mind you of the [A#]mess you left when you [C]went away
It's not [G]fair, to de-[F]ny me, of the [A#]cross I bear that you [C]gave to me
Atleast how I play them
[Gm] [355333]  
[C] [-35553]  
[G] [355433]  
[F] [133211]  
[A#] [-13331]  
Note: When you are playing the chorus in order to get it to sound right in
your head the melody can be played like this:
[C] [G] [F] [A#] [C]  

Well I'm here to re-mind you of the mess you left when you went away
*This is NOT the lead tab but rather the melody as it is sung with the
chords. If this isn't correct or whatever than I don't want to here from
you because I've yet to see anyone else do any better :)
