  • Thumbelina, Thumbelina tiny little thing
    Thumbelina dance, Thumbelina sing
    Thumbelina what's the difference if you're very small?
    When your heart is full of love you're nine feet tall

    Though you're no bigger than my thumb
    Than my thumb, than my thumb
    Sweet Thumbelina don't be glum
    Now now now, ah ah ah, come come come

    Thumbelina, Thumbelina tiny little thing
    Thumbelina dance, Thumbelina sing
    Thumbelina what's the difference if you're very small?
    When your heart is full of love you're nine feet tall

    Though you're no bigger than my toe
    Than my toe, than my toe
    Sweet Thumbelina keep that glow
    And you'll grow and you'll grow and you'll grow

    Thumbelina, Thumbelina tiny little thing
    Thumbelina dance, Thumbelina sing
    Thumbelina what's the difference if you're very small?
    When your heart is full of love you're nine feet tall Writer/s: TRACY K. BONHAM
