TOAD [SINGING]: The scrubbings and the washings / And the noses with the drippings / And the sopas always boiling / The panes of windows falling / With the diapers changing / With the roof, she's leaking / And the enchiladas spoiling GRUNDEL, MOZO, GRINGO: Ooh. MRS. TOAD [SINGING]: Do you know how to do these things / Like you will have to do these thingsLike you will have to do these things? / Or does the very thought of it / Make you wince?

MRS. TOAD: Slower? We don't do ballads. THUMBELINA: Maybe I can take notes. MRS.

We open Monday in Medina / Then we do Babylon / Then we hop to Barcelona for a week / Then for a month in Athens at the Parthenon / Where they love us / 'Cause we do the show in Greek GRUNDEL, MOZO, GRINGO: We are the finest in the businessWe are the finest in the business / It's a well-known fact / And you'll forgive us / If we have to blow the horn MRS. TOAD: Because this isn't any ordinary animal act / And today a star is born GRUNDEL, MOZO, GRINGO: Go on the road / You'll hear the peoples roar / You're not a toad / But that's what makeup's for / Just sing on pitch / We'll get very rich / Wait until they see the ThumbelinaWait until they see the Thumbelina / On the road / Singing Thumbelina / Dancing Thumbelina / Something Thumbelina MRS.
