Animated short summary

On Monday morning, Sunset Shimmer and Twilight Sparkle's morning routines have varying levels of frustration. While Sunset barely gets up in time for school, Twilight has little difficulty getting ready. As soon as the girls are out of their homes, it starts raining.

From here, their journeys to school are fraught with misfortune. Twilight gets splashed with water, misses the school bus, and loses an umbrella in the wind. Meanwhile, Sunset trips over a dog leash and spills her tea on the sidewalk. Other obstacles the girls encounter include huge rain puddles, construction sites, getting chased by poodles, and stopping to pet a stray kitten.

When Twilight and Sunset meet up outside the school, the rain stops. Once inside, they meet up with the rest of their friends, who apparently had their own troubles getting to school. Sharing a laugh over their respective misfortunes, they take a group selfie with Pinkie Pie's cellphone.

Lyrics

Sunset in a hoodie; Twilight holding an umbrella SS6
[Sunset Shimmer]
Wake up in the mornin'
And I pull the covers over my head
Hey-oh (Week is starting, week is starting)
I gotta get it movin'
But I'd rather stay here instead
Hey, hey (School is calling, school is calling)
[Twilight Sparkle]
My hair's a disaster, don't know what to do
But I need to move faster to make it through
This crazy morning has got me confused
(Clock is racing, time is wasting
9:00 to 6:00, brain is phasing)
[Sunset Shimmer and Twilight Sparkle]
Everywhere that I go
Everything that I do
I can't shake these Monday blues
'Cause some days, I can't find the way
Out of this haze, hope I'll be okay
[Twilight Sparkle]
Just can't seem to get it right
A cloud is hanging over me
Hey (Rain is falling, rain is falling)
I wish it was the weekend
'Cause you know that's where I'd rather be
Hey, hey (Friday's calling, Friday's calling)
[Sunset Shimmer]
I wonder what things won't go my way
Or if I'll ever make it through the day
I hope this feeling won't lead me astray
(You'll get through it, you can do it
With your gals, there's nothing to it)
[Sunset Shimmer and Twilight Sparkle]
Everywhere that I go
Everything that I do
I can't shake these Monday blues
'Cause some days, I can't find the way
Out of this haze, hope I'll be okay
[Twilight Sparkle]
Just when I feel like it might come crashing down
[Sunset Shimmer]
I can count on my friends to help me turn my mood around!
[Sunset Shimmer and Twilight Sparkle]
(With my gals, there's nothing to it!)
Everywhere that I go
With everything that I do
I'll say goodbye to the Monday blues
'Cause I've got my friends with me
And the sunshine is all I see
Everywhere that I go
With everything that I do
The world feels so fresh and new
'Cause I've got my friends with me
And those blues are ancient history!
