Big Yellow Taxi

by Kentucky Express




Don't know what you've got 'til it's gone?
You don't know what you've got 'til it's gone?
Don't it always seem to go
That don't know what you've got 'til it's gone?

They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

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 'til it's gone?
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot

Took all the trees, put 'em in a tree museum
And they charged the people a buck and a half just to see 'em

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone?
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot

Hey farmer, farmer, put away the 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 'til it's gone?
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot

Now 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 'til it's gone?
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot

(Ohoo-bop-bop-bop-bop) don't it always seem to go
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot
(Ohoo-bop-bop-bop-bop) don't it always seem to go
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot
(Ohoo-bop-bop-bop-bop) don't it always seem to go
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot
(Ohoo-bop-bop-bop-bop) don't it always seem to go
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot
(Ohoo-bop-bop-bop-bop) don't it always seem to go
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot
(Ohoo-bop-bop-bop-bop) don't it always seem to go
