This opening title song of the movie introduces the heroine and the type of lifestyle she has on the farm. Thumbelina is loved by all the farm animals, settles in really well, but has only the one qualm of her unusually small size which keeps on getting in the way.

The lyrics in italics are in the soundtrack, but not in the movie.

Duck
Who is the girl no bigger than a bumble bee?

Goat
Who is the angel with a funny name?

Cow
Who we don't know where she's from or how she came to be?

Farm Animals
But happy was the day she came

Chickens
Thumbelina

Goat
She's a funny little squirt

Chickens
Thumbelina

Cow
Tiny angel in a skirt

Chickens
Thumbelina

Farm Animals
She's mending, then baking, pretending, she's making things up

Chickens
Thumbelina

Thumbelina
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

Farm Animals
Thumbelina

Goat
Think of all we'll save on meals

Farm Animals
Thumbelina

Turkey
Maybe if you had high heels

Farm Animals
Thumbelina
If you stay here forever we know that we'll never be glum

Cow
By gum

Farm Animals
Thumbelina
She's a whisper of the thing
Thumbelina
She's as welcome as a spring
Thumbelina
First she's mending, then baking, pretending, she's making things up

Farm Animals
Thumbelina
She's always in the thick
Thumbelina

Thumbelina
But I get out in the nick

Farm Animals
Thumbelina
Fortune sometimes has tricked us, but this time it's picked us

Thumbelina
Oh a plum's so big, and a fig's so big
And they call it a twig but a twig's so big

Farm Animals
It's a great big world for Thumbelina, Thumbelina, Thumbelina

Thumbelina
That's me!
