Glass of Water, or A Glass Of Water,[1] is the fifth song of season four of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, featured in the eleventh episode, Three's A Crowd. It marks Discord's first musical solo. In this patter song, Discord makes a "small" list of favors that he would like from Princess Cadance and Twilight Sparkle while he recovers from the blue flu.

John de Lancie performs it in a sprechgesang style of half-speaking and half-singing. Daniel Ingram stated that the song's instrumental track in the episode "is too quiet".[2] In an interview, lyricist Ed Valentine revealed that the basis for this song was "The King of Broadway" from the musical The Producers.[3] The song serves as the sixth track on the soundtrack album Songs of Harmony, and it is mentioned in chapter 4 of Discord and the Ponyville Players Dramarama.


Twilight with Cadance's mane and Cadance with Twilight's mane S4E11
A little glass of water please
A fresh pressed hanky if I sneeze
Some tea with honey from the bees
Whenever you can brew it
Princess Cadance: I'll get your tea.
And while I get a little rest
A teeny tiny small request
Some codfish oil for my chest
Poured from a crystal cruet
Twilight Sparkle: A crystal cruet?
[singing faster]
My goodness, I'm a nincompoop
Because I fear I've got the croup
I need a vat of pumpkin soup
And scarves made out of zinnias
Did I say zinnias? I meant silk
Or something shiny of that ilk
And then I'll need some nice warm milk
And pastries from Abyssinia
And since my stomach's feeling crummy
Why not give my aching tummy
Something soothing, something yummy
Piled up with noodles?
Add a slice of homemade rye
With stacks of Swiss way up high
Served with sides of sweet mince pie
More basil; I need oodles!
Twilight Sparkle: Anything else?
I'll be grateful for your charity
Until the bitter end
Because I've heard that tenderness
Is what you lend an ailing friend
Tenderness, isn't that right, friend?
Twilight Sparkle: Right, but—
Discord: So, who's ready for my big reprise?
I'd like that glass of water please
Some magic spell to cure disease
A firm "gesundhoof" when I sneeze
A fresh bouquet of roses
Some lozenges will soon appease
My wheezing when I start to sneeze
A wig to keep me from the breeze
And blankets for my toes-es
Take tweezers out of my valise
And then massage my knobby knees
A bowl of peas, some extra cheese
A cuddle with a Pekingese
A singing harp who's named Louise
A goat on skis, a new trapeze
And more and more and more and more of these
And just because I oughta...
Make sure I'm drinking in the right
Amount of fluids day and night
I wish I may, I wish I might
Have just one little thing
Oh, would you please finally bring
Me that tiny glass
Of water?!!
