Ludicrous Lyrics (1 of Many)
"You're So Vain"
#1 in both the USA and Australia
Ranked at #72 on Billboard's Greatest Songs of All Time.
This one has had me stumped for years. And since it just popped up on shuffle, I thought I'd share my confusion and see if anyone wants to put their two cents worth in. Or more accurately five cents, given we've eliminated one and two cent coins from our currency in Australia.
Is the lyric actually:
"I had a dream there were clouds in my coffee"
"I had a dream there were clowns in my coffee"
Either way, it's a pretty stupid lyric.
Why would there be either clouds or clowns in your coffee? And how big would the cup need to be to hold them? And if you drank them would there be any ill-effects?
Just a random thought for today.
In other news. Beetroot dip. Greatest thing ever? I've nearly scoffed a whole tub on my own in one sitting.
