You're So Vain~Carly Simon

~~So Carly, just who is 'You're So Vain' about?~~
當You're So Vain
於73年一月在電台升至榜首時,正是Carly下嫁民歌好手James Taylor的一個月之前,所以當Carly上電視表演及接受訪問時,總是被問及You're So Vain內容的主角是否就是James Taylor,但當她否認之後,便引來猜測:Mick Jagger? Cat Stevens? Warren Beatty?Kris Kristofferson?但三十多年來Carly都沒有道出答案,直到現在的傳媒及歌迷還在好奇,究竟誰是主角?

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