Big Yellow Taxi Lyrics

They paved paradise 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 'til it's gone.
The paved paradise put up a parking lot

They took all the trees, put 'em in a tree museum,
And they charge the people a dollar and a half just to see 'em


Hey farmer farmer, put away the DDT now
Give me spots on my apples, but leave me the birds and the bees


Late last night, I heard the screen door slam,
And a big yellow taxi took away my old man.

Chorus x 2

The paved paradise put up a parking lot x 2
Ha Ha Ha
