Lyrics:

A-TISKET A-TASKET
Ella Fitzgerald
- words and music by Ella Fitzgerald and Van Alexander

A-tisket a-tasket
A green-and-yellow basket
I bought a basket for my mommie
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 it to the market

She was truckin' on down the avenue
Without a single thing to do
She was peck, peck, peckin' all around
When she spied it on the ground

A-tisket a-tasket
She took my yellow basket
And if she doesn't bring it back
I think that I shall die

(Was it red?)    No, no, no, no
(Was it brown?)  No, no, no, no
(Was it blue?)   No, no, no, no
Just a little yellow basket
