Songs

Song title: Little, Teeny Thumbelina


Oh, Thumbelina
Smaller than my thumb
You'll save the little people
And the princess you'll become

You are twice as brave as anyone
You're good and true
Little, teeny Thumbelina
I love you

You've got to bring your father
The prince and all his men
To make the valley safe
For the little people once again


So, on with your adventure
Let no one interfere
You'll feel like a giant
When the little people cheer

Oh, Thumbelina
Smaller than my thumb
You'll save the little people
And the princess you'll become


You are twice as brave as anyone
You're good and true
Little, teeny Thumbelina
I love you


You are twice as brave as anyone
You're good and true
Little, teeny Thumbelina
I love you



Song title: Edelweiss


Edelweiss, edelweiss
Every morning you greet me
Soft and white
Clean and bright
You look happy to meet me


Blossoms of snow
May you bloom and grow
Bloom and grow forever
Edelweiss, edelweiss
Bless my homeland forever
