#sol21 March 18 You’re so Vain

Slice of LIfe
Part of Slice of Life by Two Writing Teachers March Slice a Day Challenge! I’m slicing every day this month. Thanks for stopping by

Sometimes I like to write with a mentor text closeby… This one came to me when I thought about how the friends and enemies of writers have an interesting thing to think about every time they read . . .

With apologies to Carly Simon… please sing this slice in your head – or out loud if you so choose. (Click for a reminder)

You’re so Vain

Such a witch

You walked into our life like you were taking a bow with a wink
Your dress strategically dipped below to appeal
Your nails they were pink
You had one eye in the mirror, as you watched yourself cartwheel
And all the friends dreamed that they’d be your partner
They’d be your partner and

You’re so vain
You probably think this slice is about you

You’re so vain (you’re so vain)
I bet you think this slice is about you
Don’t you don’t you?

You had me several months ago when I was quieting my hunches
Well you said that life was really grand and you would never pull any punches
But you lied you stole you lied some more
even to those you loved
I had some dreams they were clouds in my Dunkin’ clouds in my Dunkin’ and
You’re so vain

You probably think this slice is about you
You’re so vain (you’re so vain)

I bet you think this slice is about you
Don’t you don’t you don’t you?

I had some dreams they were clouds in my Dunkin’ clouds in my Dunkin’ and
You’re so vain
You probably think this slice is about you
You’re so vain (you’re so vain)
I bet you think this slice is about you
Don’t you don’t you?

Well I hear you went and cut your hair
And your life is going well
Soon you’ll forget about the damage, the despair
you caused to those in your spell

Well you’re where you should be all the time
And when you’re not, you’re an underworld spy
Or the wife of an old friend wife of an old friend and

You’re so vain
You probably think this slice is about you
You’re so vain (so vain)
I bet you think this slice is about you
Don’t you don’t you don’t you?

You’re so vain
You probably think this slice is about you
You’re so vain
Probably think this slice is about you
You’re so vain

  1. Ha! Way to channel your inner Carly Simon. You may be happy to note I heard her voice singing your words all throughout.
