A-Tisket, A-Tasket

In the style of

Ella Fitzgerald

Lyrics

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 girlie
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 peck peck
peckin' 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 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 again

no no no no
no no no no
no no no no
just a little
yellow basket
a little
yellow basket
