I'd always sung (to myself as i've not done the song in public) the incorrect words to Carly Simon's You're So Vain. I thought it was "and when you're not, you're with someone who would steal all the wine from a close friend". The correct words read "you're with some underworld spy or the wife of a close friend". So I can imagine if you're taking a version down from performances or a recording and not reading the words it will be easy enough for it to change
