Generosity is the third song of season four of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, featured in the eighth episode, Rarity Takes Manehattan. This song serves as Rarity's love letter to the city of Manehattan and also showcases her generous spirit.

According to Daniel Ingram, this song is "intended as a modern interpretation of a Big Band style song to evoke a feeling of old New York/Frank Sinatra nostalgia."[1] Ingram has an uncredited cameo as the pony whom Rarity gave her scarf to.[2] The song serves as the second track on the soundtrack album Songs of Harmony. The album version combines the original and the reprise into one track. The song has also been released as a sing-along on the DVD My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: Season Four Disc 4.

The first line of this song is referenced by Rarity in Made in Manehattan. An instrumental version of the song is used in the first three levels of Hasbro's online game Key Crusaders, as well as on the Rarity-themed levels of My Little Pony: Puzzle Party.

Lyrics

Rarity singing S4E08

"I'm here to show all that I can give."

[Rarity]
Oh, Manehattan, what you do to me
Such a huge bustling community
And there's always opportunity
To do the friendly thing
If some are grouchy, pay no mind
Surprise instead with something kind
Lo and behold, you may just find
A smile is what you bring
"Luggage Cart": Welcome to the Manefair Hotel! Please allow me to take those bags to your room for you!
Rarity: Only if you'll accept this gratuity first.
"Luggage Cart": Oh-ho-ho! I'll get your change!
Rarity: Do keep it all. I insist!
[Rarity]
Generosity, I'm here to show all that I can give
Generosity, I'm here to set the bar
Just sit back and watch how I live
Rarity: After you.
Tourist Pony 1: Why, thank you.
Rarity: Please, take mine.
"Wisp": Wow, okay.
[Rarity]
Some may say, "Rarity,
Don't be so big-hearted and bold
Treating strangers like they're friends
This town's too big and cold"
But this is how I play my cards
I'm not about to fold
Where I see a frown, I go to town
Call me the smile patrol
[Rainbow Dash]
Oh, Manehattan, what you do to us
[Fluttershy]
What if you find a Gloomy Gus?
[Applejack]
It's no intimidatin' thing
[Pinkie Pie]
Just be kind without a fuss
[Rarity]
Generosity, I'm here to show all that I can do
Generosity, you are the key
Manehattan, I'm here just for you
Just for you

Oh, Manehattan, what have I done?
The thought of Fashion Week was fun
But I went way too far
My friends gave to me in ways so kind
And I gave them nothing but a hard time
And now alone I stand
And now alone I stand
