"A Tisket, A Tasket" as written by and Ella/alexander Fitzgerald....
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

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
(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
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.
