The Vote is the seventh song of season five of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, and the second of six songs featured in the eighteenth episode Crusaders of the Lost Mark. Silver Spoon makes her singing debut in this song. In this song, the Cutie Mark Crusaders make their campaign for Pipsqueak as the new student body president, while Diamond Tiara makes a rather selfish campaign composed of blackmails and empty promises.

Production

This song was inspired by "What Is This Feeling?" from the musical Wicked.[1]

Lyrics

Foals with hooves up for Pipsqueak S5E18
[Cutie Mark Crusaders]
It's time to make a change
This is our chance
Don't be afraid to do what's right
He's it! Vote for Pip!
We got an opportunity
To have fun again
A vote for Pip, and you can join the fight
It's time for a new leader
It's time to make a change
We're here to fight for what we believe
(Vote for Pip!)
It's finally time we beat her
And play a better game
'Cause when we vote together
There's nothing that we can't achieve
[Diamond Tiara]
I don't believe what I am hearing
I'm the only one you should be cheering
Pipsqueak? Try "Pip's weak!" Don't you think?
But a diamond is perfection
It's natural selection
So your vote better be for me, not the weakest link
Apple Bloom: We'll let the votin' decide!
[Diamond Tiara]
Everypony has their little secrets
I know you do
A vote for me will help you keep them safe
Like your creepy super strength!
Or your mane extension
A little thing I won't mention
Or those freakish large teeth in your face!
Apple Bloom: Come on now, ponies! Don't listen to her!
[Cutie Mark Crusaders]
You've gotta vote for change
It's time for a new leader
End all the tyranny
Vote now and we can beat her
It's now another day
And we believe in what's right
[Foals]
Vote for Pip! Vote for Pip!
[Cutie Mark Crusaders]
Our victory is in sight
Diamond Tiara: Stop! Everypony who hasn't voted, listen up!
Pip makes promises he can't keep
But I can do more
You could really use a new bookbag
'Cause I'll make things happen
That none of you here can afford
To do, like, ever!
Wouldn't you like a little something sweet?
Here's a parasol to hide you from the heat
Who says that I can't be nice?
But first there's one thing
An itsy-bitsy little string
And voting for me is the price!
[Silver Spoon]
I've a tiny suggestion
That you should be aware
You could probably win this election
If you show them all you real—
Diamond Tiara: I don't recall asking you to speak!
All: [gasps]
Sweetie Belle: Well, if that's how you treat your best friend, then I choose Pipsqueak!
[Foals]
Vote!
[Cutie Mark Crusaders]
Stand strong and don't be afraid, ponies
Let's free ourselves from the past
[Foals]
For Pip!
Vote!
[Foals]
He's it! Vote for Pip! Vote!
[Cutie Mark Crusaders]
We'll let honor win out against the tyranny
And make a change that will last
[Foals]
For Pip!
Vote!
[Foals]
Vote for Pip!
[Cutie Mark Crusaders]
It's time for a new leader
It's time to make a change
We're here to fight for what we believe
[Foals]
Vote for Pip!
[Cutie Mark Crusaders]
It's finally time we beat her
And play a better game
'Cause when we vote together
There's nothing that we can't achieve
[Foals]
Vote for Pip!
