Big Yellow Taxi

Joni Mitchell

Big Yellow Taxi - Joni Mitchell -

They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique and a swingin’ 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 bop

They took all the trees, put ‘em in a tree museum
And they charged the people a dollar and a half 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 bop

Hey farmer farmer, put away that D.D.T. 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
Shoo bop bop bop bop
Shoo bop bop bop bop

Late last night I heard the screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi took away 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 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

They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
