A Tisket, a Tasket

A-tisket, a-tasket,
A brown and yellow basket;
I sent 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 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,
The letter from my basket;
And if she doesn't bring it back
I think that I will die'
