Song Meaning
Verse 1
A-tisket, a-tasket
A green and yellow basket
I send a letter to my mommy
On the way I dropped it
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
A-tisket, a-tasket
A green and yellow basket
And if that girlie don't return it
Don't know what I'll do
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
A-tisket, a-tasket
I lost my yellow basket
Won't someone help me find my basket
And make me happy again
Verse 8
(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
Verse 9
A little yellow basket
