Carly Elisabeth Simon (born June 25, 1945) is an American singer/songwriter and musician. She is also an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and two-time Grammy Award winner. Simon was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1994.

"You're So Vain" is a song written and performed by Carly Simon released in December 1972. The song is a critical profile of a self-absorbed lover. The song was a number-one hit, and spawned what many fans consider to be the biggest musical mystery of the era. There has been much debate over whom exactly the song is about. Popular guesses on the subject include Mick Jagger (who sang uncredited backing vocals on the song), Cat Stevens, Warren Beatty, Kris Kristofferson (with whom she had had brief relationships), the unfaithful fiancé William Donaldson and Simon's ex-husband, James Taylor.



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
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...

[Chorus]
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...

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

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 youre with
Some underworld spy or the wife of a close friend
Wife of a close friend, and...

[Chorus]

Εμ, ναι. Αλλά τη χάρη δεν την πολυβλέπω. Αφού πήγαν να της φάνε το τραγούδι. Ή λες να τους την έκανε αυτή πρώτη;

Από που προκύπτει αυτό; Δεν το είδα κάπου. Διάβασες όλη τη βιογραφία της;

Δικό μου λάθος από τσαπατσουλιά. Διάβασα πολύ στα γρήγορα το whom the song was about και άλλο κατάλαβα.
