Little Boxes lyrics

Little boxes on the hillside
Little boxes made of ticky-tacky
Little boxes on the hillside
Little boxes, all the same
There's a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one
They're all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same

And the people in houses
Who went to the university
Where they put in boxes
And they all came out the same
There's doctors and lawyers
And business executives
They're all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same

And they all play on the golf-course
And drink their Martini dry
And they all have pretty children
And the children go to school
And the children go to summer camp
And then to the university
They all get put in boxes
They all come out the same

And the boys go into business
And marry, raise a family
And they all get put in boxes
Little boxes, all the same
Yeah a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same
