Lyrics and pictures

Everything we're dreaming of
Will soon be ours.
MR. MOLE: I do.
PRINCE CORNELIUS [singing]: Anything that you desire
Anything at all.
REVEREND RAT: And, Thumbelina, do you take this mole to be your lawful wedded husband?
THUMBELINA [voice off]: Do not forget me.
PRINCE CORNELIUS [voice off]: Forget-me-nots. I'll never forget you
I'll never forget you
never.
THUMBELINA [voice off]: Never, never.
REVEREND RAT: Speak up.
THUMBELINA: Never.
REVEREND RAT: What?
THUMBELINA [singing]: You will be my wings
You will be my only love
You will take me far beyond the stars.
You will take me far beyond the stars

THUMBELINA: Jacquimo, this is silly. This is a weed patch.
JACQUIMO: This is the Vale of the Fairies!
THUMBELINA: Take me home. Please.
JACQUIMO: Let me be your wings. Like that. Sing, like that.
THUMBELINA [singing]: You will lift me high above
Everything we're dreaming of will soon be ours.
Everything we're dreaming of will soon be ours

JACQUIMO: Incroyable!
THUMBELINA [singing]: Anything that we desire
Anything at all
Every day you'll take me higher...
THUMBELINA: Let's be practical. This isn't the Vale of the Fairies and Cornelius is never coming back.
PRINCE CORNELIUS [singing]: And I'll never let you fall...
THUMBELINA: You. It's you. Cornelius, you're alive!
PRINCE CORNELIUS: Thumbelina, will you marry me?
THUMBELINA: I will. Wings. I have wings.
I have wings
My very own wings!
CHORUS: Anything that you desire!
THUMBELINA: Hello, Mother!
CHORUS: Anything at all
Every day I'll take you higher
And I'll never let you fall
And always
Follow your heart.
JACQUIMO: And of course they lived happily ever after.
