Intro: F  C7 

         F            F                Bb             F
Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes made of ticky-tacky
       F            C7               F             C7
Little boxes on the hillside, little boxes all the same
          F                F               Bb               F
There's a green one, and a pink one, and a blue one, and a yellow one
            F               C7                    F
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky, and they all look
		F
just the same


        F             F           Bb               F
And the people in the houses, all went to the university
      F                C7              F                C7
Where they were put in boxes, and they came out all the same
            F                    F            Bb           F
And there's doctors, and there's lawyers, and business ex-ecutives
            F               C7                    F
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky, and they all look just
	F
the same


         F               F                Bb               F
And they all play on the golf course, and drink their martinis dry
         F               C7                F              C7
And they all have pretty children, and the children go to school
        F              F                Bb               F
And the children go to summer camp, and then to the university
      F               C7              F                F
Where they are put in boxes, and they come out all the same


        F            F             Bb                 F
And the boys go into business, and marry and raise a family
   F             C7                    F                 C7
In boxes made of ticky-tacky, and they all look just the same
          F                F               Bb               F
There's a green one, and a pink one, and a blue one, and a yellow one
            F               C7                    F
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky, and they all look just
 	F
the same

  1. Hello! I would be more than happy if you’d improve this website by input strumming ?☺

  2. If you +2 this on the transposer into key of C , it makes a much lighter more ukelele sound and if you listen to Walk off the earths version it’s easier to sing in their style

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
