Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky tacky
Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes all the same,
Theres a pink one & a green one
And a blue one & a yellow one
And they are 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 theres doctors & lawyers
And business executives
And they are 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´re put in boxes
And they come out all the same.

And the boys go into business
And marry & raise a family
In boxes made of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same,
Theres a pink one & a green one
And a blue one & a yellow one
And they are all made out of ticky tacky
And they all look just the same.

Pesmu "Little Boxes" je napisala Malvina Reynolds (pevačica, kompozitorka i aktiviskinja) 1962. godine kao ciničnu kritiku razvoja i života predgrađa. Pesma govori o monotonsti predgrađa i ljudi koji žive u njima, o nedostatku invidualnosti, gde se svako od njih preslikava jedan u drugog. Težeči da postanu deo i pratne savremene pordoične vrednosti srednje klase, oni postaju svojevrsni klonovi.

Little Boxes je dobila nekoliko svojih obrada. Verzija grupe Womenfolk je najkraća pesma koja je ušla na top listu Billboard Hot 100 sa dužinom 1:03. Ostali izvođači koji su obradili pesmu su: adolfo celdrán, Víctor Jara, Regina Spektor, Rise Against, Devendra Banhart, Phosphorescent, Man Man, Death Cab for Cutie i The Decemberists.

Pesma je ponovo isplivala na pop scenu kad je korišćena kao tema u uvodnoj špici popularne serije "Weeds".
