Two for Tuesday: Clowns in my Coffee (🎶🎶 You’re So Vain song by Carly Simon 🎶🎶)

 

I love these natural stone seats
Nope – no seating available yet – but soon – very soon I hope

Maybe today – we can stand – or pull up a seat – and slow down –

Pause…. simplify for a bit – 

Maybe even look up to the sky and enjoy the clouds. 

Did you know that I won five dollars because I had the correct lyrics to Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain” song? 

🎶🎶  🎶🎶  🎶🎶

I am not a gamblin’ woman, but I was sitting around with a family member (back in early 1990s) and this family member insisted the line was “Clowns in My Coffee” – this was before streaming of music – before we could run to Youtube for an answer. Later, when we did check the song on someone’s CD (yeah – CDs and cassettes overlapped for a little while) well.. I won the bet – it was not “clowns” but “clouds” in my coffee. Made for good fun. ((and side note – i am wrong on lyrics many times – so many songs are made fun that way and some songs are just hard to decipher) 

Okay – happy Tuesday and let’s pause and dream a little – or a lot – clouds or clowns – let’s lighten up and not get too serious – right?  

🙂 

 

Hope you have a nice day

  1. It’s not light here yet, but since lockdown mornings have been pretty chilled. Afternoons we get out and walk, and chase a few clouds. The youngsters stay well so I have no cause for complaint. 🙂 🙂 Have a good week, Yvette!

    1. hi Clive – this song is truly a gem and even though i could hear clouds – of course there are many of songs i have butchered the lyrics on- well
      enough of them at least – and see you for tuesday tunes in a little while 🎵🎵

      1. Over the years there have been many like that. My favourite is probably Purple Haze, by Jimi Hendrix, where many are convinced that in the actual line “excuse me while I kiss the sky” he is saying “excuse me while I kiss this guy.” Makes a difference…

        Tuesday Tunes is there whenever you feel up to it 😉

  2. Glad you won – that song would have taken a very creepy turn if it were “clowns ” 😉 There is still a lot of conjecture about who the song is about, though I think Warren Beatty is most people’s choice. On the other hand, I don’t care how vain he was, the song really IS about him 😉

    1. well i will
      trust your expertise on who the song IS about – even though i have dedicated this song to a couple people over the years / sang it to them in their honor hahah

    1. aHI YC – you are so right – could use a search engine for many options on song lyrics – not just Youtube
      and as i have noted in the post (added a note) i have been seeing so many times on song lyrics and sometimes it makes for a great version of the song or makes for good fun

    1. hi – glad to share a smile –
      and sometimes clouds remind me of that song – well that opening photo did
      and i think it is fun to mess up song lyrics – or mumble them – not sure if you saw breaking Bad show but one time when hank sings “eye of the tiger” he mumbles sounds and it was so fun
      🎵🎵

  5. I’m so relieved that I haven’t been wrong all these years. When I saw your title, I thought, “No way it’s clowns!!” Phew! 🙂 But I’m not so vain that I thought I could never be wrong about song lyrics.

  6. Ha! What did we do before we could instantly look up song lyrics? I used to think Credence Clearwater Revival’s Bad Moon on the Rise was There’s a Bathroom on the Right!

  7. I have always liked Carly Simon’s songs, especially that song. When I read the title of your post, I thought “wow, I always thought it was ‘clouds in my coffee'” then I read the post. Those are some awesome clouds you have in this post Yvette. I just thought of that song this morning as there was a blurb on the Bloomberg Business Report that soon, no more Lear jets will be made. They mentioned the rich and famous having their own and played the excerpt from “You’re So Vain” with this line:
    “Then you flew your Lear jet up to Nova Scotia, to see the total eclipse of the sun.”
