Nina & Frederik - Little boxes
Tekst en muziek: Malvina Reynolds
(1964)






Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes made of ticky tacky
Little boxes, little boxes, little boxes all the same
There’s a green one and a pink one, 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 go to the university
And they all get put in boxes, little boxes 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 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
And they all get put in boxes and they all come out the same



And the boys go into business and marry and raise a family
And they all get put in boxes, little boxes all the same
There’s a green one and a pink one, a blue one and a yellow one
And they’re all made out of ticky tacky and they all look just the same
