Lyrics:

Thread by thread, stitching it together
Twilight’s dress, cutting out the pattern snip by snip
Making sure the fabric folds nicely
It’s the perfect color and so hip
Always gotta keep in mind my pacing
Making sure the clothes’ correctly facing
I’m stitching Twilight’s dress

Yard by yard, fussing on the details
Jewel neckline, don’t you know a stitch in time saves nine?
Make her something perfect to inspire
Even though she hates formal attire
Gotta mind those intimate details
Even though she’s more concerned with sales
It’s Applejack’s new dress

Dressmaking’s easy, for Pinkie Pie something pink
Fluttershy something breezy
Blend color and form,

Do you think it looks cheesy?

Something brash, perhaps quite fetching
Hook and eye, couldn’t you just simply die?
Making sure it fits forelock and crest
Don’t forget some magic in the dress
Even though it rides high on the flank
Rainbow won’t look like a tank
I’m stitching Rainbow’s dress

Piece by piece, snip by snip
Croup, dock, haunch, shoulders, hip
Thread by thread, primmed and pressed
Yard by yard, never stressed
And that’s the art of the dress!

I think this is the only MLP song I can remember… This, Winter wrap-up and the MLP theme…

If you’re talking about lyrics, I can totally agree that this song does have easily memorable lyrics. :slight_smile:
