about

Diamond Tiara is one of my least favorite characters on MLP, but for some reason I've always wanted to write a song about her. This one speculates on why she might have such a problem with Sweetie Belle, namely that Diamond thinks Rarity would make a much better big sister for her.

lyrics

I know you feel the same as me
Don't try to hide behind some false humility
You want the world you saved to recognize your face
No less than you deserve, and surely no disgrace

Your sister doesn't understand
The importance of the time that she demands
But you and I we know, the value of these jewels
The tiny diamonds only overlooked by fools

Rarity, I make believe
I'm the one you would sing to sleep
If you had your choice
Sweetie Belle will never see
The fortune in her family
The privilege she enjoys

So is it really a surprise
When you know how much I hate to compromise
I'd go so far to catch your eye
Undiscouraged by some blank flanks' hue and cry

Rarity I make believe
I'm the one you would sing to sleep
If you had your choice
Sweetie Belle will never see
The fortune in her family
The privilege she enjoys
If what I say brings such offense
Hurt feelings are a small expense
To finally make my case
Fate has played the cruelest joke
But I will never give up hope
One day I'll take her place
