Lyrics with pictures
Who is the girl no bigger than a bumblebee?
Who is the angel with a funny name?
COW: We don't know where she's from or how she came to be
ALL: But happy was the day she came
Thumbelina! She's a funny little squirt.
Tiny angel in a skirt
First she's mending, then baking
Pretending, she's making things up
Who would believe the wonder of the world I see?
/ Each little minute brings a new surprise
/ There's only one peculiar thing that bothers me /
Seems I'm the only one my size
GOAT: Think of all you'll save on meals
GOOSE: Maybe if you had high heels
/ If you stay here forever
/ We know that we'll never be glum
GOAT: By gum
/ She is always in the thick
THUMBELINA: But I get out in the nick
/ Fortune sometimes
/ Has tricked us
/ But this time it's picked us
THUMBELINA: Oh, a plum's so big
ALL: A plum
THUMBELINA: And a fig's so big
/ And they call it a twig
/ But a twig's so big
ALL: It's a great big world
THUMBELINA: That's me!
