LITTLE BOXES   Time: 3/4   Tenor: C   Bass: C


INTRO: 1,  57,  1


       1            *                4             1
Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes made of ticky-tacky
       1            57               1             57
Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes all the same
          1                *               4               1
There's a green one, and a pink one, and a blue one, and a yellow one
            1               57                    *                 1
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky, and they all look just the same


        1             *           4               1
And the people in the houses, all went to the uni-versity
      1                57              1                57
Where they were put in boxes, and they came out all the same
            1                    *            4           1
And there's doctors, and there's lawyers, and business ex-ecutives
            1               57                    *                 1
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky, and they all look just the same


         1               *                4               1
And they all play on the golf course, and drink their mar-tinis dry
         1               57                1              57
And they all have pretty children, and the children go to school
        1              *                4               1
And the children go to summer camp, and then to the uni-versity
      1               57              *                1
Where they are put in boxes, and they come out all the same

        1            *             4                 1
And the boys go into business, and marry and raise a family
   1             57                    1                 57
In boxes made of ticky-tacky, and they all look just the same
          1                *               4               1
There's a green one, and a pink one, and a blue one, and a yellow one
            1               57                    *                 1
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky, and they all look just the same
