This is the 85th song in the Key of Awesome series.
Katy Perry wrote a whole song called Dark Horse without actually knowing what the expression "dark horse" means, but Juicy J and a friendly Sphinx are here to give her an English lesson.
JUICY J (Spoken)
These lyrics are wack!
Dark horse means an unknown challenger who comes from behind in a competition, yo!
It don't mean having magical powers or have anything to do with ancient Egypt
Didn't anybody proofread this?
Let's get paid!
I'm really smart
I know about histories
This work of art is a documentary
John Mayer is a jerk who lied to me
He's not a Mayor of anything
I am a witchy dark horse
You don't understand metaphors
Yes I do
It's what happens when you metamorph
I took a course in Wordometry
Baby you could be my locksmith
'Cause having "safe sex" is what I'm all about
But if you ever try to milk me
I'll chew and spit you out just like a mad cow
I'll make you quake and cower
Where is she going with this?
By using my horsepower
I get condoms from a trojan horse
Can someone explain all the horse expressions to her?
(Spoken) I can help with that
A rocking horse
That's for a kid
A talking horse
That's Mr. Ed
Stretch after exercise
Or you could get a charley horse that cramps up both your thighs
Don't put the cart before the horse or you'll do things out of order
When you think it's the same but turns out different
That's a horse of another colour
A one-horse town has a small population
If you hold your horses in music that is called a retardation
Miley's already working with Nelly
Justin got Jay-Z
And if Gaga wasn't with R. Kelly
I'd change horses mid-stream
You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink
You can lead a horticulture but you can't make her think
The rest of you can get the F out
I don't even care what a 'meta' is for
I think I should end this song now
I don't want to flog it like a dead horse
Wait! You finally got one right!
My heart of stone's filled with pride
I see the light at the end of... the horse?
Yeah that's close enough
