CALIFORNIA — A mystery that has been puzzling Carly Simon fans for years has finally been solved.

Simon said the second verse of her infamous song “You’re So Vain” was about Warren Beatty.

The 70-year-old singer told People magazine that she’s “confirmed that the second verse is Warren.”

She added that Beatty “thinks the whole thing is about him!”

The second verse featured the lyrics: “You had me several years ago when I was still quite naive / Well you said that we made such a pretty pair / And that you would never leave / But you gave away the things you loved and one of them was me.”

Simon will release the memoir, “Boys in the Trees,” on Nov. 24.

The subjects behind “You’re So Vain,” released in 1972, have been a matter of speculation for years.

On the list of possible muses: David Geffen, Mick Jagger, James Taylor and Cat Stevens among others.

However over the years, all have been shot down by the singer as not being the right men.

The singer said the No. 1 hit is about three men, including Beatty, though she isn’t naming the others “until they know it’s about them,” reported the Huffington Post.
