This song is awesome. Great melody, singing. It is so true. Creepy rhetoric about engineered society. Are you a member?- grisgris

  • Song Lyrics:
    Little boxes on the hillside
    Little boxes made of ticky-tacky
    Little boxes on the hillside
    Little boxes all the same
    There's the green one and the big one
    And the blue one and the 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 get put in boxes
    And they came out all 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 martinis 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
    When they're all put in boxes
    And they come out all 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
