剧集对白 节日盛装

Art of the Dress[1],又名《Rarity's Dressmaking Song》,[2]是出现于剧集“节日盛装”中的一首歌曲。本曲是对美国著名音乐剧及电影音乐作曲家及作词家斯蒂芬·桑德海姆的代表作之一的音乐剧《星期天与乔治同游公园》中的歌曲《Putting It Together》的致敬。本曲是小马动画中两首借鉴了桑德海姆的歌曲之一,另外一首是《At the Gala》。在加上了重奏之后,本曲是截至目前为止整个动画中持续时间最长的歌曲。本歌是《Songs of Friendship and Magic》原声专辑里的第四首歌,重奏并没有被包括在专辑中,但专辑里的数位小册子却包含了重奏部分的歌词。专辑版本的本曲与电视版本的略有不同,移除了包括了澳宝的叫声在内的一些声音效果,还加入了人声合唱。此外,本曲还是专辑《Magical Friendship Tour》A面的第六首歌曲。


Thread by thread, stitching it together
Twilight's dress, cutting out the pattern snip by snip
Making sure the fabric folds nicely
It's the perfect color and so hip
Always gotta keep in mind my pacing
Making sure the clothes' correctly facing
I'm stitching Twilight's dress
Yard by yard, fussing on the details
Jewel neckline, don't you know a stitch in time saves nine?
Make her something perfect to inspire
Even though she hates formal attire
Gotta mind those intimate details
Even though she's more concerned with sales
It's Applejack's new dress
Dressmaking's easy, for Pinkie Pie something pink
Fluttershy something breezy
Blend color and form,
[To Opalescence] Do you think it looks cheesy?
Something brash, perhaps quite fetching
Hook and eye, couldn't you just simply die?
Making sure it fits forelock and crest
Don't forget some magic in the dress
Even though it rides high on the flank
Rainbow won't look like a tank
I'm stitching Rainbow's dress
Piece by piece, snip by snip
Croup, dock, haunch, shoulders, hip
Thread by thread, primmed and pressed
Yard by yard, never stressed
And that's the art of the dress!

剧集对白 节日盛装


暮光闪闪: Now, the stars on my belt need to be technically accurate. Orion has three stars on his belt, not four.
Stitch by stitch, stitching it together
Deadline looms, don't you know the client's always right?
Even if my fabric choice was perfect
Gotta get them all done by tonight
Pinkie Pie, that color's too obtrusive
Wait until you see it in the light
I'm sewing them together!
萍琪派: Don't you think my gown would be more "me" with some lollipops?
瑞瑞: Well, I think...
萍琪派: Balloons?
瑞瑞: Well...
萍琪派: Do it!
Hour by hour, one more change
I'm sewing them together, take great pains
Fluttershy, you're putting me in a bind
Rainbow Dash, what is on your mind?
Oh my gosh, there's simply not much time
Don't forget, Applejack's duds must shine
Dressmaking's easy, every customer's call
Brings a whole new revision
Have to pick up the pace, still hold to my vision
暮光闪闪: That constellation is Canis Major, not Minor.
小蝶: French haute couture, please.
瑞瑞: Ugh...
苹果杰克: What if it rains? Galoshes!
萍琪派: More balloons! Oh no, that's too many balloons. More candy! Oh, less candy. Oh wait, I know. Streamers!
瑞瑞: Streamers?
萍琪派: Whose dress is this?
瑞瑞: Streamers it is.
云宝黛茜: What?
瑞瑞: Aren't you going to tell me to change something too?
云宝黛茜: No, I just want my dress to be cool.
瑞瑞: Do you not like the color?
云宝黛茜: The color's fine, just make it look cooler.
瑞瑞: Do you not like the shape?
云宝黛茜: The shape's fine, just make the whole thing... you know, cooler. It needs to be about 20% cooler.
All we ever want is indecision
All we really like is what we know
Gotta balance style with adherence
Making sure we make a good appearance
Even if you simply have to fudge it
Make sure that it stays within our budget
Got to overcome intimidation
Remember, it's all in the presentation!
Piece by piece, snip by snip
Croup, dock, haunch, shoulders, hip
Bolt by bolt, primmed and pressed
Yard by yard, always stressed
And that's the art of the dress!
