A-tisket, a-tasket A green 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 took put it in her pocket She was truckin' on down the avenue Without a single thing to do She went peck, peck, peckin' all around When she spied it on the ground She took it, she took it She took my yellow basket And if she doesn't bring it back I think that I would die A-tisket, a-tasket A green and yellow basket And if that girlie don't return it Don't know what I'll do Oh dear, I wonder where my basket can 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 (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
