Ella Fitzgerald – A Tisket, A Tasket

A-tisket A-tasket
A brown and yellow basket
I send a letter to my mommy
On the way I dropped it
I dropped it
I dropped it
Yes on the way I dropped it
A little girlie picked it up
And put it in her pocket
She was truckin on down the avenue
Not a single thing to do
She went peck peck pecking all around
When she spied it on the ground
She took it
She took it
My little yellow basket
And if she doesn’t bring it back I think that I will die

A-tisket A-tasket
I lost my yellow basket
And if the girlie don’t return it
Don’t know know what I’ll do

Oh dear I wonder where my basket can be
(So do we, so do we, so do we, so do we, so do we)
Oh gee I wish that little girl I could see
(So do we, so do we, so do we, so do we, so do we)

Oh why was I so careless with that basket of mine?
That itty bitty basket was a joy of mine!

A-tisket
A-tasket
I lost my yellow basket
Won’t someone help me find my basket
And make me happy again?
(Was it green?) No, no, no, no
(Was it red?) No, no, no, no
(Was it blue?) No, no, no, no

Just a little yellow basket
A little yellow basket
