"Little Boxes" (karaoke)

"Little Boxes" (sheet music)


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,

And they're all made out of ticky-tacky

And they all look just the same.

 

And the people in the houses

All went to the university

Where they all were put in boxes

And they all came out the same.

And there's doctors and there's lawyers

And business executives

And 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

Where they all are put in boxes

And they all come out the same.

 

And the boys go into business

And marry and raise a family

In boxes made of ticky-tacky

And they all look just the same.

There's 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.
