You Got to Share, You Got to Care is a song that Pinkie Pie sings in the episode Over a Barrel. The melody was composed by "the son of an upper executive"[2], arranged by Daniel Ingram, and performed on piano by Steffan Andrews who also arranged the piano part.[3] The song gets a very brief reprise right before the buffalo attack starts in Appleloosa. Music from this song is used in the DJ Pinkie Pie game on the Hub Network's site. As with the Hush Now Lullaby and At the Gala, the MP3 file used by the DJ game classifies the music as belonging to the blues genre.[4] The song is also included in the My Little Pony Live Show.

This song is called "Sharing Song" on BMI, where "Amy Anne Rogers" is inaccurately listed as one of the composers.


Pinkie Pie on stage.

[Pinkie Pie]
We may be divided
But of you all, I beg
To remember we're all hoofed
At the end of each leg
No matter what the issue
Come from wherever you please
All this fighting gets you nothing
But hoof-and-mouth disease
Arguing's not the way
Hey, come out and play!
It's a shiny, new day
So, what do you say?
You gotta share
You gotta care
It's the right thing to do
You gotta share
You gotta care
And there'll always be a way through
Both our diets, I should mention
Are completely vegetarian
We all eat hay and oats
Why be at each other's throat?
You gotta share
You gotta care
It's the right thing to do
And there'll always be a way
