Art of the Dress Reprise Lyrics
Twilight Sparkle: Now, the stars on my belt need to be technically accurate. Orion has three stars on his belt, not four.
Rarity: Stitch by stitch, stitching it together
Deadline looms, don’t you know the client’s always right?
Even if my fabric choice was perfect
Gotta get them all done by tonight
Pinkie Pie, that color’s too obtrusive
Wait until you see it in the light
I’m sewing them together!
Pinkie Pie: Don’t you think my gown would be more “me” with some lollipops?
Rarity: Well, I think…
Pinkie Pie: Balloons?
Pinkie Pie: Do it!
Rarity: Hour by hour, one more change
I’m sewing them together, take great pains
Fluttershy, you’re putting me in a bind
Rainbow Dash, what is on your mind?
Oh my gosh, there’s simply not much time
Don’t forget, Applejack’s duds must shine
Dressmaking’s easy, every customer’s call
Brings a whole new revision
Have to pick up the pace, still hold to my vision
Twilight Sparkle: That constellation is Canis Major, not Minor.
Fluttershy: French haute couture, please.
Applejack: What if it rains? Galoshes!
Pinkie Pie: More balloons! Oh no, that’s too many balloons. More candy! Oh, less candy. Oh wait, I know. Streamers!
Pinkie Pie: Whose dress is this?
Rarity: Streamers it is.
Rainbow Dash: What?
Rarity: Aren’t you going to tell me to change something too?
Rainbow Dash: No, I just want my dress to be cool.
Rarity: Do you not like the color?
Rainbow Dash: The color’s fine, just make it look cooler.
Rarity: Do you not like the shape?
Rainbow Dash: The shape’s fine, just make the whole thing… you know, cooler. It needs to be about twenty percent cooler.
Pinkie Pie: All we ever want is indecision
Rainbow Dash: All we really like is what we know
Twilight Sparkle: Gotta balance style with adherence
Fluttershy: Making sure we make a good appearance
Applejack: Even if you simply have to fudge it
Main cast sans Rarity:
Make sure that it stays within our budget
Got to overcome intimidation
Remember, it’s all in the presentation!
Piece by piece, snip by snip
Croup, dock, haunch, shoulders, hip
Bolt by bolt, primmed and pressed
Yard by yard, always stressed
And that’s the art of the dress!
