-5*-5* 5 5*-5* 5
A-tis-ket a-tas-ket
5* -5* -5* -5* -6 -5* 5
A brown-and-yel-low bas-ket
5* 5* 5* 5* -3* 5* 5* 5* -5*
I wrote a let-ter to my mom-my
5* -5* 5 -3* 5 -5*
On the way I dropped it

5 -5* 5 5* -5* 5
I dropped it, I dropped it
5* -5* -5* -5* -6 -5* 5
Yes, on the way I dropped it
5 5* 5* 5* -3* 5* 5* 5*
A lit-tle girl-ie picked it up
-3* 5 -5* 5 -3* 5 3*
And put it in her poc-ket

3* -3* 5* 5* 5* -6 -6 6 6 5*
She was truck-in’ on down the av-e-nue
-3* 5 -5* 5 -5* -4 3*-3*
With-out a sin-gle thing to do

3* -3* 5* 5* 5* 5* 6 5* 6
She went peck, peck, peck-in’ all a-round
5 -5* -5* -6 5 3* -3*
When she spied it on the ground

-5* -5* 5 5* -5* 5
She took it, she took it
5* -5* -5* -5* -6 -5* 5
My lit-tle yel-low bas-ket
5 5* 5* 5* -3* 5* 5* 5*
And if she does-n’t bring it back
-5* -5* 5* 5 -3* 3*
I think that I will die

tis-ket a-tas-ket
5* -5* 7* -6* 6 -5* -4
I lost my yel-low bas-ket
-4 4* 4* -3*-3* 4* 4* -3*
And if that girl-ie don’t re-turn
-3* -5* 5* -4 -3* -5*
I don’t know what I’ll do

7* 7* -6 7* 8 7* -6 7* 7* 7*-6-5*
Oh gee. I won-der where my bas-ket can be
-5*-6 -6* -5*-6 -6* -5*-6 -6*

So do we. So do we.)

Oh dear, I wish that lit-tle girl I could see.

7* -7* -7*-7*7* -7* -7*
Oh, why was I so care-less
-7* 7* -7* -7* 7* -5*
With that bas-ket of mine
-7* -7*-7* -7*-7* -7* 7* -8 -7* 7* 6 5
That it-ty, bit-ty bas-ket was a joy of mine.

Tisket tas-ket
-5* 7*-6* -6 -6 -4 3*
I lost my yel-low bas-ket.
-5* -5* -5* 5 -3* -5* -5* 5 -3*
Won�t some-one help me find my bas-ket;

(Was it red?) No, no, no, no
7* -6 7* -6
(Was it blue?) No, no, no, no
-6 -5* 7* -6 -4 -4 -3* 3*
Just a lit-tle yel-low bas-ket.

Lyrics

A-tisket a-tasket
A green and yellow basket
I wrote a letter to my love
And 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

A-tisket a-tasket
A green and yellow basket
I wrote a letter to my love
And 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

(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 baske
