You're so vain


You walked into the party
Like you were walking onto a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf it was apricot
You had one eye in the mirror
As you watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they'd be your partner
They'd be your partner, and

You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?


You had me several years ago
When I was still quite naive
Well, you said that we made such a pretty pair
And that you would never leave
But you gave away the things you loved
And one of them was me
I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee, and


You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?


I had some dreams they were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee, and


You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?


Well, I hear you went up to Saratoga
And your horse naturally won
Then you flew your Lear jet up to Nova Scotia
To see the total eclipse of the sun
Well, you're where you should be all the time
And when you're not, you're with
Some underworld spy or the wife of a close friend
Wife of a close friend, and


You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?

When I first heard this song, the key person identified with was Muhammad Ali! :-)

sorry, not you unless you want it to be about you :-)

interesting, I had wondered about Mick Jagger? Cat Stevens? Warren Beatty? Kris Kristofferson? It was common knowledge that she had been involved with each of them in the past.

Carly has never revealed who she had in mind when she wrote You're So Vain, and over 30 years later we are still wondering........

This song is so much fun! I have always loved it.. Neil Diamond, Olivia and Carly.. you and I could have grown up together Alex.

One of the Idol contestants sang it last week ... check it our here.. Simon Cowell thought she was singing it to him.. he liked it.. what guy wouldn't :)

hi bob,

we seems to have similar good tastes in artistes. We must be long lost soul mates. Once lost but now are found....

If you feature Linda Ronstadt or Roy Orbison I'll really begin to wonder about this soul mate thing Alex :)
