(Rosie's just read the new contact Mattel have drawn up since they took over from HiT. She for one, is not amused for the upcoming seasons)

ROSIE: Red? They want to paint me red(?) Who's stupid idea was that?!

ROSIE'S DRIVER: You think you've got it bad? I hear Edward and Henry are to get the boot for Season 23, and they're to be replaced.

ROSIE'S FIREMAN:
Well, I bet whoever it is, they won't be as good a back-engine as Edward or do the Flying Kipper run as successfully as Henry does. Mind you, they have brought Terrance and Bulgy back onto the scene.

ROSIE: Yeah, but still, the writers' could've thought of something different than fool about with my looks. Bringing back characters, everybody likes. Getting rid of popular characters, that's pushing their luck. But to change general appearances with consultation or general opinion, that's too much! . And why? Because those writers can't think of anything to do with me! They think a pink engine's too challenging. (MOCKINGLY) "So, let's change Rosie's colour to red. That'll make writing her stories sooooo much easier(!)". Like there aren't plenty of red engines on Sodor already(!)
I came to Sodor red and, by George Bradshaw, I'll be scrapped before I become red again for the rest of my life! They've only just released my true-form model on Bachmann, for whistling out loud.

>Music starts<

ROSIE'S DRIVER: You said it, my dear. You can't let those Mattel guys push you around like a broom whilst fans blindly follow their mistakes and effortless writers.

ROSIE:
They want me to be red
They say that it looks good
But I'm a simple tomboy train
Who's past as all a joke

They say that I should change
And be less of a challenge
But that look makes my head ache
And their writers are wimps.

They want me to give up
The true colour that makes me me
But it's so good to be pink

It's good to be pink
It's great to be unique
It's nice to be a stand-out
then just blend in with the crowd

It's swell in lavender
It's keen diesel or steam
Yes, I'm an extra ordinary
equal-step machine

It's good - to be - pink

They think it'd please the fans
who'd care-free tag along
But some will not stop trying
To put me back in the pink - Haha!

To be a unique colour
Is a thrill
And let me add
It's so good to be pink!

It's good to be pink
It's great to be unique
It's nice to be a stand-out
then just blend in with the crowd

It's swell in lavender
It's keen diesel or steam
Yes, I'm an extra ordinary
equal-step machine

(MICROPHONE)
It's good to be pink
It's great to be unique
It's nice to be a stand-out
then just blend in with the crowd

(NORMAL)
It's swell in lavender
It's keen diesel or steam
Yes, I'm an extra ordinary
equal-step machine

It's good - to be - pink

Woooww! I feel good! - Haha!
Whilst working on my Rosie's Background story, I came up with a parody of "Good to Be Bad" from Season 1 of LazyTown; www.youtube.com/watch?v=Br_VJz… (but the tune - with the extra lines - came from here; www.youtube.com/watch?v=tk7SFK…) as Rosie gets her first look at the Mattel Contract and is heartily disgusted by it, and her crew support her her frustrations (even though they think Rosie got of easy in comparison to Henry and Edward)

I dedicate this to :icontankengineninja: who's works are truly incredible, and yet blocked me over some positive (and harmless) compliments I gave on their talent and skill. So I hope this'll convince them to unblock me soon.

Thanks. Nice to appreciate a comment that didn't contain an insult or asking me to do something physically impossible due to my facts, figures and beliefs regarding Rosie...

Wait till you see my next parody against Mattel's contract...

Truthful and quite amusing.

And at first I thought her new livery was to impress Thomas, if you get what I mean.

I doubt it was for Thomas. If that had been the case, Mattel would've mucked up Emily instead...

Well since Mattel took over, that's just the tip of the iceberg, and leads down to Henry & Edward's dismissal from the Steam Team...

Thank you. It's nice to know there are still people out there to seek Rosie's true form.
