LyricsBig Yellow Taxi

Joni Mitchell

Last update on: September 29, 2020

They paved paradise, 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, put up a parking lot (Ooh, bop-bop-bop-bop, ooh, bop-bop-bop-bop) They took all the trees put 'em in a tree museum And they charged the people a dollar an'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, put up a parking lot (Ooh, bop-bop-bop-bop, ooh, bop-bop-bop-bop) Hey farmer, farmer put away that DDT 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, put up a parking lot (Ooh, bop-bop-bop-bop, ooh, 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, put up a parking lot (Ooh, bop-bop-bop-bop) I said don't it always seem to go That you don't know what you've got till its gone They paved paradise, put up a parking lot (Ooh, bop-bop-bop-bop) They paved paradise, put up a parking lot (Ooh, bop-bop-bop-bop) They paved paradise Put up a parking lot
