You Oughta Know 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...

    Her boyfriend has either left her or broken up with her and has started a relationship with another woman. She tells him "he seems very well...but I'm not quite as well" meaning she is unhappy without him in her life. But, she is telling him even though I'm incomplete without you I'm better off without you.
