Natalie Cole – A Tisket A Tasket lyrics

A tisket a tasket
A brown and yellow basket
Well, I wrote 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 she put it in her pocket

She was truckin' on down the avenue
Without a single thing to do
She went a-peck, peckin' all around
Then 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
You know I lost my yellow basket
And if that girlie don't return it
I don't know what I'll do

Oh gee, I wonder where my basket can be?
So do we, so do we, so do we
Oh gee, I wish that little girlie I could see
So do we, so do we, so do we

I did not take care of that little basket of mine
Oh, 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, again?

Was it blue? No, no, no, no
Was it green? No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Was it Prada? Oh, that's not fair
My little yellow basket
