“Little Boxes” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).

Lyrics: Malvina Reynolds.
Tune: Malvina Reynolds.


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.
