    I always thought this was speaking against the upper class. Most people didn't live in suburbs back then much less go to college. In the end, though, the song shows that the jokes on them because they end up all following the same patterns.

    I think this whenever I drive by those cut and paste suburban Mcmansions.

    This was written by Malvina Reynolds after she saw the tract houses in Daly City next to San Francisco. They still look tacky.

    this is such a great song that speaks against conformity and sheep. so many people just follow directions as stanley milgram proved nicely. It's true, that people all seem to live, grow up and be the same.

    This song is so perfectly poignant and just as relevant as it was in 1963.

    First he talks to much as usual, but the song above all the lyrics, is wonderful.
