Equestria Girls, also known as Cafeteria Song, is a song in My Little Pony Equestria Girls. It is the only song in the film performed onscreen by the characters.


Production and re-use

A karaoke version of the song is included under the title "Cafeteria Song" on the Blu-ray and DVD releases of the film. In the third Through the Mirror bonus feature, The Music, Daniel Ingram refers to the song as being called "Cafeteria Song", and in an August 2013 tweet, Ingram refers to the song as "The Cafeteria Song".[1]

A slightly extended version of the song was published by Hasbro's mylittlepony and mlpequestriagirls YouTube channels respectively on August 27 and 28, 2013, under the title "Magic of Friendship".[2][3]

Part of the song appears in chapters three and fifteen of the Rainbow Rocks screenplay novelization of the first eight animated shorts, on page 21 of the My Little Pony: Equestria Girls Holiday Special comic, and in chapter eight of Sunset Shimmer's Time to Shine.

Music from the song is used in Hasbro's Equestria Girls online games Dash for the Crown and Fall Formal Dance-Off, the latter of which identifies the music as rock. The Gameloft version uses a different vocal take from Rebecca Shoichet and removes Flash Sentry's guitar solos.

The song serves as the second track on the soundtrack album My Little Pony Equestria Girls - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, under the title Equestria Girls (Cafeteria Song). It also serves as the eleventh track of the My Little Pony 2015 Convention Collection, under the title Cafeteria Song.

Equestria Girls movie song pink screen slide 5
[Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Fluttershy, Rarity]
Hey, hey, everybody
We've got something to say
We may seem as different
As the night is from day
But you look a little deeper
And you will see
That I'm just like you
And you're just like me.
Yeah!
Hey, hey, everybody
We're here to shout
That the magic of friendship
Is what it's all about
Yeah,
We thought we were different
As the night is from the day
Until Twilight Sparkle
Helped us see another way
So get up get down
If you're gonna come around
We can work together
Helping Twilight win the crown
So get up get down
'Cause it's gonna make a sound
If we work together
Helping Twilight Sparkle
Win the crown!
[Pinkie Pie]
Hey, hey hands up now,
We're sending a message
To the crowd
Hands wave up
Then come down
We party together
All around
[Rarity]
Generous, honesty,
[Applejack]
Laughter, kindness, loyalty
[Fluttershy]
Twilight helped us each to see
[Rainbow Dash]
All that we can be!
[Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Applejack, Fluttershy, Rarity]
So get up get down
If you're gonna come around
We can work together
Helping Twilight win the crown
So get up get down
'Cause it's gonna make a sound
If we work together
Helping Twilight Sparkle
Win the crown!
[Twilight Sparkle]
I'm gonna be myself
No matter what I do
And if we're different yeah
I want you to be true to you
If you follow me
We'll put our differences aside
We'll stick together and
Start working on that school pride!
[All students]
Jump up make a sound (Hey!)
Stomp your hooves turn around
Start now, make a change,
Gonna come around
Jump up make a sound (Hey!)
Stomp your hooves turn around
Canterlot Wondercolts
Help her win the crown!
Jump up make a sound (Hey!)
Stomp your hooves turn around
