There was some special on VH1 the other day about Hollywood Secrets. One of the many that they covered was the affair Carly Simon had…whom she had it with. The song “You’re So Vain” speaks of it, and that only one person knows whom she had the affair with…and that secret was sold off at a charity auction. Now what kind of a secret is that? *wrinkles nose*
(The song in question just happens to be one of my favorites.)

Your So Vain – 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 on the mirror as you watched yourself go by
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)

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…

(chorus)
