A Tisket, A Tasket ~ Music & Song Lyrics

green and yellow basketHere are the lyrics to the children’s song, A Tisket, A Tasket.  I usually have my kids skip around in a circle and act out the words while they sing.

You can use little baskets and a paper letter as props to go along with the song.  Kids can take turns dropping the letter and picking it back up again.

A Tisket, A Tasket

basket imageA tisket, a tasket

A green and yellow basket.

I wrote a letter to a friend

And on the way I dropped it.


I dropped it, I dropped it

And on the way I dropped it.

A little boy picked it up

And put it in his pocket!


His pocket, his pocket

He put it in his pocket

On the way I dropped it and he

Put it in his pocket!

Well I walked around the corner and I walked around the block

And I walked right into a doughnut shop

And I picked up a doughnut fresh from the grease

And I handed the lady a five cent piece


Well she looked at the nickle and she looked at me

And she said this nickle is no good, you see

There’s a hole in the middle and it goes right through

And I said there’s a hole in the doughnut too!


Thanks for the doughnut

Good day!
