Big Yellow Taxi - Lyrics

They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique, and a swinging hot spot
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got till it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
Shoo-bop-bop-bop-bop, shoo-bop-bop-bop

They took all the trees and put 'em in a tree museum
And then they charged all the poeple twenty-five bucks just to see 'em
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got till it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
Shoo-bop-bop-bop-bop, shoo-bop-bop-bop

Hey farmer, farmer, put away your ddt now
Give me spots on my apples but leave me the birds and the bees, please
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got till it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
I say, they paved paradise and they put up a parking lot

don't it always seem to go
that you don't know what you've got till it's gone
they paved paradise and put up a parking lot
shoo-bop-bop-bop-bop

Late last night i heard the screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi carried off my old man
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got till it's gone
They paved paradise and they put up a parking lot
Shoo-bop-bop-bop-bop

don't it always seem to go
that you don't know what you've got till it's gone
they paved paradise and put up a parking lot
shoo-bop-bop-bop-bop

oh, now, they paved paradise and they put up a parking lot
shoo-bop-bop-bop-bop
hey, steam rolled paradise and put up a parking lot
shoo-bop-bop-bop-bop
