Carly Simon – You're So Vain Lyrics


You pyonged “Carly Simon – 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

As you watched yourself gavotte

And all the girls dreamed that they'd be your partner

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
