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
All went to the university
Where they were put in boxes
And they came out all 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
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

The boys go into business
And marry and raise a family
They all get put in boxes
Little boxes all the same

A green one a pink one
A blue one and a yellow one
They're all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same
