Little Boxes
Pete Seeger Lyrics


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
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 go to the university
And they all get put in boxes, little boxes 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 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
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they're all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same

Heard this as a kid, made me never want to be put in a box and been fighting it ever since....RIP Pete, you were truly a great man.

@Luis Avila I remember the teacher who gave me this song to listen to, and he must have known it would change me. Because as you say, ever since that moment, I realized, that society was categorizing and can't be hauling everybody into little boxes. And I also decided never to be boxed in by anybody. spent most of my life off grid. Don't think I ever directly paid a penny tax, and yes this song changed the viewpoints of generations of children
