You're So Vain - A Modern Parody

Carly Simon’s song You’re so Vain could be about almost anyone. However, this parody might be even better than the original. You decide.

A great mystery has always surrounded who Carly was actually writing about. 42 years later she only revealed that verse 2 was about Warren Beatty, but not the other verses.

So who is this parody about?
Could it be you? You decide.

Here are the lyrics for the You’re So Vain Parody:

You’re So Vain

Parody by Jeff Zaremsky and Keren Tarr

You walked into the service like you were walking on to a cloud
You sat strategically in the center of it all
You thought to yourself out loud 
You had one eye on the mirror as, as you watched yourself gloat
You think the members think you are so special
You are so special, and...

You're so vain, you probably think this sermon’s about you
You're so vain, I'll bet you think this sermon’s about you
Don't you? Don't You?

You had me several years ago because you said you believed
Well you said that you’d love the Lord forever
And that you would never leave
But it really was yourself you loved and no one else you see?
I had some dreams, that one day you would repent
One day you would repent, and...

You're so vain, you probably think this sermon’s about you
You're so vain, I'll bet you think this sermon’s about you
Don't you? Don't You? Don't You?

I had some dreams, that one day you would repent
One day you would repent, and...

You're so vain, you probably think this sermon’s about you
You're so vain, I'll bet you think this sermon’s about you
Don't you? Don't You?

Well I hear you went to feed the poor
So that you’d would be seen by all
But it’s the blood of the lamb that gets you in the door
Without Him you will fall  

God sees your motives all the time                      
And He wants to live from within                              
He can transform you and cleanse all of your sins        
cleanse all your sins, and...                                            

You're so vain, you probably think this sermon’s about you
You're so vain, I'll bet you think this sermon’s about you
Don't you? Don't You? Don't you?

You're so vain, you probably think this sermon’s about you
You're so vain, you probably think this sermon’s about you
