Equestria Girls is a song in My Little Pony Equestria Girls. Twilight Sparkle and her new human friends sing the song in the Canterlot High school cafeteria in order to create unity between the students and boost Twilight's popularity, and to also help everyone forget about Twilight's embarrassing video. It is the only song in the movie performed onscreen by the characters. All the other songs are sung offscreen during montages. 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 karaoke version of the song is included under the title "Cafeteria Song" on the Blu-ray and DVD releases of the film. 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] 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. A shorter version of this song and the instrumental track of Time to Come Together can be found in the Hearth's Warming Eve update of Gameloft's mobile game.

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

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!

An alternate version of the song was released as a free .ZIP download on Walmart.com, in the form of an MP3 file encoded by iTunes 10.5.2 with the title Equestria Girls Song and a creation date of July 23, 2013.[4] On August 27 of the same year, Daniel Ingram was asked regarding this version of the song "For curiosity sake, Did you have anything to do with this at all?"[sic] and replied "haha no, but pretty neat. Now the question is, will I see any royalties for the tune?"[5] A mostly live-action music video of a slightly different version of this version of the song, with the title Magic of Friendship, was released through EW.com and published by Hasbro's mlpequestriagirls YouTube channel respectively on August 30 and September 1 of the same year.[6][7] This music video's crew members include director John Scott[8] and makeup artist April.[9]

This version of the song is used in the Equestria Girls dance mini-game of Gameloft's mobile game, under the name EG Stomp.

A rock version with a different rap was released to coincide with the Rainbow Rocks toyline.

Lyrics

Ooh-ooh, yeah!
Hey, hey, we may seem different as night and day
But Equestria Girls see things a different way
Just look a little deeper and you will see
You know I'm just like you and you're just like me
We're Equestria Girls and we're here to shout
That the magic of friendship is what it's all about
We're Equestria Girls standing side by side
Finding the magic of friendship deep inside
Equestria Girls! Yeah!
Twilight Sparkle's a princess who shines
Fluttershy's so sweet and kind
Applejack has a country flair
Rarity knows just what to wear
Everyone wants Rainbow Dash on their side
No one's more fun than Pinkie Pie
Generous, honesty
Laughter, kindness, loyalty
Free to be what we will be
Living life in harmony
We're Equestria Girls and we're here to shout
That the magic of friendship is what it's all about
We're Equestria Girls and we're here to say
We're gonna see things a different way
Equestria Girls!
