Sung to: “Did You Ever See A Lassie”   

Did you ever see a may basket, may basket, may basket?
Did you ever see a may basket, that looked so good.
I worked for hours, Then filled it with flowers
Did you see a may basket that looked so good?

I Made A May Basket

Sung to: “a Tisket, a Tasket”

A- tisket, A- tasket
I made a may basket
I filled it up with flowers bright
and hung it on the door just right

A-tisket, A-tasket
I made a may basket
Flowers are a sign of spring
And all the joy that it can bring.
