It has a Roud Folk Song Index number of 13188.The words Tisket and Tasket do not appear in standard dictionaries, so were probably fabricated to suit the rhyme and metre.

The rhyme was first noted in the United States in 1879 [3] as a children's rhyming game.It was sung while children danced in a circle.One of the number ran on the outside of the circle and dropped a handkerchief.

The nearest child would then pick it up and chase the dropper.If caught the dropper was either kissed, joined the circle, or had to tell the name of their sweetheart.[2] An early noted version had the lyrics: And on the way I dropped it.A little boy he picked it up and put it in his pocket.[2] Ella Fitzgerald, in conjunction with Al Feldman, extended and embellished the rhyme into a jazz piece which was her breakthrough hit with the Chick Webb Orchestra in 1938.

It has since become a jazz standard.[3] A followup song written by Fitzgerald and Webb entitled I Found My Yellow Basket (1938) was less successful.In 1938 the rhyme was used as the basis for a song written by Al Feldman and Ella Fitzgerald.Ella's recording of this song in 1938 was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1986, which is a special Grammy award established in 1973 to honor recordings that are at least twenty-five years old, and that have "qualitative or historical significance".

[4] The song was a major hit of the "pre-chart" era, reaching #1 in Billboard's sheet music and Record Buying Guide (jukebox) charts, also #1 on "Your Hit Parade".[5] Fitzgerald also performed the song in Ride 'Em Cowboy (1942).
