You're So Vain by Carly Simon


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
When 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

Well I hear you went up to Saratoga
And your horse naturally won
Then you flew your near jet 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

1972 till date, the song still holds true.
