Little Boxes
By
Malvina Reynolds

Little boxes on the hillside.
Little boxes made of ticky-tacky,
Little boxes, little boxes,
And they all look just the same.

(Additional lyrics ©2002 by Roger Scimé)

There'll be condos and apartments,
There'll be strip-malls and convenience stores.
There'll be houses by the thousands,
Nothing's ever gonna be the same.
=
See the Target and the Mervyns,
And the Wal-mart and the Wal-mart,
And the Sam's Club and the Wal-mart.
All the prices will be same

There'll be street lights, there'll be stop lights,
And gated communities.
There'll be lots and lots of rent-a-cops,
Security everywhere
=
See the drug lord and the crime boss,
And the fascist dic-
tat-or.
Living in their winter houses,
Only three months of the year.

With their Volvos and their Bentleys
And their Lexus and Mercedes.
But they won't be driving anywhere,
Too much gridlock everywhere.
=
Gone the burros and the horses,
And the chollo and the tortoises.
Gone the sunsets and the starlight,
It'll all look just the same.

No more hikers, mountain bikers,
No more tourists or photographers,
Only boxes, little boxes,
And they'll all look just the same.
=
Little boxes in the Canyon.
Little boxes made of ticky-tacky,
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky,
And they all look just the same.

Save the Canyon, for our children,
Save the Canyon, it's our neighborhood.
If there's only little boxes,
It would be such a bloody shame.
