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

Under the Boardwalk

The Drifters

Under the Boardwalk - The Drifters -

Oh, when the sun beats down and burns the tar up on the roof
And your shoes get so hot you wish your tired feet were fireproof
Under the boardwalk, down by the sea, yeah
On a blanket with my baby is where I’ll be

Under the boardwalk out of the sun
Under the boardwalk we’ll be havin’ some fun
Under the boardwalk people walking above
Under the boardwalk we’ll be falling in love
Under the boardwalk BOARDWALK

From the park you hear the happy sound of a carousel
you can almost taste the hot dogs and French fries they sell
Under the boardwalk, down by the sea, yeah
On a blanket with my baby is where I’ll be

Under the boardwalk out of the sun
Under the boardwalk we’ll be havin’ some fun
Under the boardwalk people walking above
Under the boardwalk we’ll be falling in love
Under the boardwalk BOARDWALK

Under the boardwalk, down by the sea, yeah
On a blanket with my baby is where I’ll be

Under the boardwalk out of the sun
Under the boardwalk we’ll be havin’ some fun
Under the boardwalk people walking above
Under the boardwalk we’ll be falling in love
Under the boardwalk BOARDWALK

Under the boardwalk, down by the sea, yeah
On a blanket with my baby is where I’ll be

Under the boardwalk out of the sun
Under the boardwalk we’ll be havin’ some fun
Under the boardwalk people walking above
Under the boardwalk we’ll be falling in love
Under the boardwalk BOARDWALK

River

Joni Mitchell

River - Joni Mitchell

It’s coming on Christmas, 
they’re cutting down trees, 
they’re putting up reindeer, 
and singing songs of joy and peace 

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

But it don’t snow here 
It stays pretty green 
I’m going to make a lot of money 
Then I’m going to quit this crazy scene 

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh, I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby cry 

He tried hard to help me, 
you know, he put me at ease 
and he loved me so naughty, 
made me weak in the knees 

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I’m so hard to handle, 
I’m selfish and I’m sad, 
now I’ve gone and lost the best baby 
that I ever had

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh, I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby say goodbye

It’s coming on christmas 
they’re cutting down trees 
they’re putting up reindeer 
and singing songs of joy and peace 

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
