A-TISKET A-TASKET (Van Alexander / Ella Fitzgerald) Chick Webb & His Orchestra (vocal: Ella Fitzgerald) Also recorded by : Van Alexander; Patti Austin; Mildred Bailey; Big Kahuna & The Copa Cat Pack; Bigband Orch.; and many others ... A-tisket a-tasket A brown-and-yellow basket I sent a letter to 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 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 (Orchestral Break) A-tisket a-tasket I lost my yellow basket And if that girlie donít return it Donít know what Iíll do Oh dear I wonder where my basket could be (So do we, So do we, 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, 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 Wonít 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. (Contributed by Bill Huntley - December 2004)
