You can get extra lives or unlimited lives from Armored Armadillo's level. Start the level and take the rideable cart or you can walk instead. If you take the cart, be prepared to jump off when you see a bat that is larger than normal and is a different color. This particular bat has a high drop rate for extra lives.
