A TISKET, A TASKET  LYRICS

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' down the avenue
With not a single thing to do

She went peck, peck
Pecking all around
When she spotted 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

[Instrumental]

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

Oh dear I wonder where my basket could be
Oh gee I wish that little girl I could see

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?
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
