A-Tisket, A-Tasket Lyrics by Ella Fitzgerald

 

A-Tisket, A-Tasket by Ella Fitzgerald


a tisket a tasket, a brown and yellow basket
i sent 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 girly picked it up and put it in her pocket

she was truckin' on down the avenue
with not a single thing to do
she went pick, pick, picking 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 that girly dont return it
dont know what ill do
oh dear i wonder where my basket can be?
(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)
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
wont 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
