THE HORSE TOLD ME From the film "Riding High" (1950) (Johnny Burke / James Van Heusen) Bing Crosby (Film Soundtrack) - 1949 Nat King Cole - 1949 Dennis Day - 1950 In the big Handicap there's a positive snap Go bet on a horse called 'The Sheik' He'll walk off with the crown if he doesn't fall down And, my boy, that's what happened last week Oh, the Owner told Clarence the clocker The clocker told jockey McGee The jockey, of course, passed it on to the horse And the horse told me Tell the age of the beast by his teeth, and at least His teeth in the paddock looked great But this toothy old red had to sneeze in the stretch And he won by the loss of a plate Oh, the Owner told Clarencee the clocker The clocker told jockey McGee The jockey, of course, passed it on to the horse And the horse told me I once bet on a steed of phenominal speed Boy, she was fast as Aunt Nell But the judges they cried, "This one's disqualified! There's a jet engine under her tail" Oh, the Owner told Clarence the clocker The clocker told jockey McGee The jockey, of course, passed it on to the horse And the horse told me Tomorrow I'll bet just for kicks that I'll get What's gold is just ol' yeller lead I can lose with a grin, if the horse don't come in I'll just blow a big hole in my head Oh, the Owner told Clarence the clocker The clocker told jockey McGee The jockey, of course, passed it on to the horse And the horse told me I had put down a deuce on a tip that got loose This horse in the paddock looked stunning I had overheard talk he could win in a walk And he could, but the others were runnin' Oh, the Owner told Clarence the clocker The clocker told jockey McGee The jockey, of course, passed it on to the horse And the horse told me That's what he said!
