I always thought it was obviously about George Kelley.

Carly seems to have made a mini-cottage industry out of the secret of who this song is about. For many years, it was a given that it was about Mick Jagger (the fact that he sang on the song made that even more amusing); I never heard Warren Beatty's name in connection with the song until years later.

Wait, I thought I was Mister Humble!

I think it's also sad that Carly Simon lost most of her money over the years. Same thing happened to Linda Ronstadt.
