This Day Aria, Part 1, or Cadence Aria,[1] is a song that is featured in the episode A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2. It is sung by both Princess Cadance and changeling Queen Chrysalis. As a side note, an Aria is a song sung by one singer, which given Chrysalis is disguised as Cadance (and sharing a voice actress) makes this true in a fashion. According to "The Musical Pony" complete song lyrics in Little, Brown's My Little Pony Friendship is Magic official guidebook My Little Pony: The Elements of Harmony, it is a distinct entity from the reprise Queen Chrysalis sings later in the episode. This part of the song makes up the tenth track on the Songs of Friendship and Magic soundtrack album under the title This Day Aria, although the lyric booklet incorrectly shows the lyrics of the reprise. It also serves as the fourth track on the My Little Pony 2015 Convention Collection. It is also one of two featured in the second episode of PonyChat.


The fake and the real Princess Cadance.

[Queen Chrysalis]
This day is going to be perfect
The kind of day of which I've dreamed since I was small
Everypony will gather 'round
Say I look lovely in my gown
What they don't know is that I have fooled them all!
[Princess Cadance]
This day was going to be perfect
The kind of day of which I've dreamed since I was small
But instead of having cake
With all my friends to celebrate
My wedding bells, they may not ring for me at all…
[Queen Chrysalis]
I could care less about the dress
I won't partake in any cake
Vows, well I'll be lying when I say
That through any kind of weather
I'll want us to be together
The truth is I don't care for him at all
No I do not love the groom
In my heart there is no room
But I still want him to be all mine
[Princess Cadance]
We must escape before it's too late
Find a way to save the day
Hope, I'll be lying if I say
"I don't fear that I may lose him
To one who wants to use him
Not care for, love, and cherish him each day"
For I oh so love the groom
All my thoughts he does consume
Oh, Shining Armor, I'll be there very soon
[Queen Chrysalis]
Finally the moment has arrived
For me to be one lucky bride
[Princess Cadance]
Oh, the wedding we won't make
He'll end up marrying a fake
Shining Armor will be...
Queen Chrysalis: ...mine, all mine. [evil laugh]
