|Pinkie's Lament (Album Version)|
Pinkie's Lament is the eighth song featured in the fourth season of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic and is the third of six songs featured in the twelfth episode Pinkie Pride. The final verse shares the same melody as Pinkie the Party Planner. In this song, after Cheese Sandwich takes over planning for Rainbow Dash's birthiversary party, Pinkie Pie becomes depressed about not being needed anymore. After seeing memories of her past parties, she gets new determination to reclaim her title as premiere party planner.
It is the seventh track on the album Pinkie Pie's Party Playlist.
- [Pinkie Pie]
- For all my life, all I've wanted to do
- Was make my friends want to smile true
- But maybe I was wrong
- And Pinkie Pie shouldn't plan parties at all
- I'll try to get up on my hooves
- And try a different task
- I'll find something new to do
- There's gotta be more to me than planning a party or two
- I put away my party cannon, I deflated all my balloons
- The bubbles all burst, now what is next for you?
- For you...
- Oh, I remember this one: my first party ever. My whole family was there. And that's Twilight's welcome-to-Ponyville party. She didn't even expect that one. [giggles] Oh, look at Gummy! He just looks so excited for this birthday party! Hmm. Shining Armor and Cadance's wedding sure was special, especially once I got a hold of the music.
- Oh, look at those happy faces
- All the parties that I had thrown
- I made them laugh, had such a blast
- A smile that's all their own
- They loved seeing me, the real Pinkie
- Show them the time of their life like they've never known
- Like they've never kno-o-own
- I've got to get back out there, have to show them that I've tried
- For there's only one great party pony -- that is Pinkie Pie
- Won't let Cheese Sandwich beat me, won't let him get me down
- For I am Pinkie, the bestest party pony around!
