A-tisket, a-taskes Lyrics

A-tisket, a-taskes by Ella Fitzgerald  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music

A-tisket, a-taskes A-Tisket, A-Tasket
A brown and yellow basket
I sent a letter to my mommy and on the way I dropped it

I dropped it, I dropped it
Yes on the way I dropped it
A little girly 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

Oh gee, I wonder where my basket can be
(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)

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

I lost my yellow basket
Won't someone help me find my basket
and make me happy again, 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
