Little boxes on my lap top

little boxes in the gallery

little boxes, little boxes

little boxes all the day


Where the doctors and the lawyers

hold meetings during quarantine

in their boxes, little boxes

they all can have a say


Oh the students at the grade school

and also the university

are in boxes, little boxes

where they study every day


And the teacher mutes the students

so she can keep her sanity

oh the boxes, little boxes

thank God it’s Friday


Now the flustered folk singer

thinks the sound is horrible

in the boxes, little boxes

little boxes where he plays


And the spotlight doesn’t work right

‘cause ZOOM needs more megabytes

now the boxes, little boxes

are frozen or delayed


Little boxes on my lap top

little boxes in the gallery

little boxes, little boxes

little boxes all the day
