Big Yellow Taxi - Joni Mitchell
Lyrics

They paved paradise and put up a parkin’ lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique, and a swingin’ hot spot
Don’t it always seem to go
You don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

They took all the trees, and put ’em in a tree museum
And they charged all the people a dollar and a half just to see ’em
Don’t it always seem to go
You don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

Hey farmer, farmer, put away that DDT now
Give me spots on my apples,
But leave me the birds and the bees
Don’t it always seem to go
You don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

Late last night, I heard that screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi come and took away my old man
Don’t it always seem to go
You don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

Late last night, I heard that screen door slam
And a big yellow tractor come and took away my house
They took away my land
Don’t it always seem to go
You don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
