"Dark Horse" as written by and George Harrison....
You thought that you knew where I was and when
But it looks like they've been foolin' you again,
You thought that you'd got me all steaked out
But baby looks like I've been breaking out

I'm a dark horse
Running on a dark race course
I'm a blue moon
Since I stepped from out of the womb
I've been a cool jerk
Looking for the source
I'm a dark horse.

You thought you had got me in your grip
Baby looks like you was not so smart
And I became too slippery for you
But let me say that was nothing new.

I'm a dark horse
Running on a dark race course
I'm a blue moon
Since I picked up my first spoon
I've been a cool jerk
Looking for the source
I'm a dark horse

I thought that you knew it all along
Until you started getting me not right
Seems as if you heard a little late
But I warned you when
We both were at the starting gate

I'm a dark horse
Running on a dark race course
I'm a blue moon
Since I stepped from out of the womb
I've been a cool jerk
Cooking at the source
I'm a dark horse.

    General CommentGeorge was suffering a bout of laryngitis when he recorded this making this sound like a rejected recording from the Blood on the Tracks sessions. Also, this song was neglected for some time and was quickly re-recorded and released as a B-side, according to Wikipedia.

    But, on the lighter side, this song is about George's ways with the women. I think he penned this song in the wake of his divorce from Patti Boyd, so he doesn't even try to hide his disdain for monogamy. I like this song, but the subject matter is detestable. I like the vocal, the guitar licks and other instrumentation. George Harrison is a great musician and philanthropist, but his actions with women are detestable.

    General CommentOne of the reasons I love this song is the hoarse vocals. BOTH OF YOU SHUT UP. I was like, "That's so hot, sounds like he just got through with a violent coughing fit." I like how the patheticness of his weak voice contrasts with the sassy I'm-such-a-playa lyrics. So good.

    General CommentIt's a pity that his voice was so hoarse in this song. Other than that, it's an excellent song. The melody is perfect.

    General Comment"Steaked out"? Is that New York Strip or Filet Mignon? How about "staked out"?
