Little Boxes" is a song written and composed by Malvina Reynolds in 1962, which became a hit for her friend Pete Seeger in 1963, when he released his cover version. The song is a political satire about the development of suburbia, and associated conformist middle-class attitudes. It mocks suburban tract housing as "little boxes" of different colors "all made out of ticky-tacky", and which "all look just the same.

Album Sings the Truth. Little boxes on the hillside Little boxes made of ticky-tacky Little boxes on the hillside Little boxes all the same There's a pink one and a green 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. What Tom Lehrer called the most sanctimonious song ever written, Little Boxes is a song written in 1962 by the folk singer Malvina Reynolds about the conformist, quick-fix attitudes of middle-class Americans at the time. A university professor, speaking in Time magazine in 1964, famously quipped, I’ve been lecturing my classes about middle-class conformity for a whole semester. Here’s a song that says it all in 1½ minutes.

There's a cement octopus sits in Sacramento, I think. Gets red tape to eat, gasoline taxes to drink. And it grows by day and it grows by night, And it rolls over ev'rything in sight. Oh, stand by me and protect that tree From the freeway misery. That octopus grows like a science-fiction blight, The Bay and the Ferry Building are out of sight, The trees that stood for a thousand years, We watch them falling through our tears, Oh, stand by me and protect that tree From the freeway misery. Old John MacLaren won't take this lying down, We can hear his spirit move in the sandy ground, He built this Eden on the duney plain, Now they're making it a concrete desert again, Oh, stand by me and protect that tree From the freeway misery.
