      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 were put in boxes
      And they came out all the same,
      And there's doctors and 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,
      Where they are put in boxes
      And they come out all the same.
