I'm Madeline lyrics...and questions  
Hello, everyone! In order to bring more life to this comm, I'm going to provide Madeline lyrics from the three CDs that had been released over the last twelve years: Madeline's Favourite Songs, Hats Off To Madeline and Sing-along With Madeline. I may also share lyrics to the songs not featured on the CDs if I know them.

Here are the lyrics to I'm Madeline

If you believe you must be big
In order to be tough
Then you should get to know me
I'll teach you other stuff

If you believe you must be big
In order to be tough
Then you should get to know her
She'll teach you other stuff

I'm Madeline, I'm Madeline
And though I'm very small
I'm Madeline, I'm Madeline
And inside I'm tall

She maybe teeny tiny
Diminuitive, petite
But that has never stopped her
From being pretty neat

I'm Madeline, I'm Madeline
I'm not some little twig
I'm Madeline, I'm Madeline
And inside I'm big

Dum-ti-dum-ti-dum

I'm Madeline, I'm Madeline
I'm not afraid at all
I'm Madeline, I'm Madeline
I'm bravest of all

Dum-ti-dum-ti-dum

She's Madeline, she's Madeline
We hope you have it straight
She's Madeline, she's Madeline
And inside she's
Dum-ti-dum-ti-dum
Great!

And now for my questions...

1) In the episode titled Madeline, there was an extended version of the song. Does anybody know the first couple of lines the other girls sing for the new verse? I could only recognise...

....
...
But that is not your favourite girl
Of that you can be sure

I'm not some shrinking violet
Or doormat for your feet
I'm quite the bravest, toughest little girl
You'll ever meet

I'm Madeline, I'm Madeline
I hope you have it straight
I'm Madeline, I'm Madeline
And inside I'm great

(and then the whole "she's Madeline..." moment)

If anybody could understand that, and the words for the rest of the songs in that episode, please please do let me know, I am dying to sing along to them with the right words.

2) I was looking up information concerning the Japanese dub of the animated series, and found out Madeline's first voice actress was Otani Ikue (famously known for her role as Pikachu in Pokemon). Does anybody know where I can find the earlier episodes in Japanese?

Thanks to all of you, I will provide more lyrics later.

EDIT: Figured out the lyrics I was missing!!

"We know some little girls who are
Quite timid and demure"

I'll try to find the lyrics you're looking for! Thanks so much for posting, I'm afraid our little community has been so quiet!

I'm sorry I don't know anything about the Japanese version, but I hope someone else can help out!
