LyricsBig Yellow Taxi

Joni Mitchell

Last update on: April 11, 2018

They paved paradise And 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 till it's gone They paved paradise And put up a parking lot They took all the trees And put them 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 they put up a parking lot 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 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 I said don't it always seem to go That you don't know what you've got till its 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
