Big Yellow Taxi - Lyrics

They pave paradise, they put up a parking lot
a pink hotel, a boutique and a swinging hot spot
don't it always go to show
you never know what you got till it's gone?
they paved paradise, they put up a parking lot.
They took all the trees, they put them in a tree museum
they charged the people a dollar and a half just to see them
don't it always go to show
you never know what you got till it's gone?
they paved paradise, they put up a parking lot.
Hey farmer, farmer, put away the d.d.t
give me spots on my appes but leave e the birds and the bees, please
don't it always go to show
you never know what you got till it's gone?
they paved paradise, they put up a parking lot.
Late last night i heard my screen door slam
a big yellow bulldozer took away the house and land
don't it always go to show
you never know what you got till it's gone?
they paved pardise, they put up a parking lot.
