Big Yellow Taxi
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 'em in a tree museum
And charged the people a dollar and a half to see them

Now now now, 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

Hey farmer farmer, put away your DDT
I don't care about spots on my apples
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
Hey now, they paved paradise to put up a parking lot
Why not?

Listen late last night I heard the screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi took my girl away
Now, 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

Hey now now, don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got till it's gone
They paved paradise to put up a parking lot, why not?
They paved paradise to put a parking lot
Hey hey hey, paved paradise and put up a parking lot

I don't wanna give it, why you wanna give it
Why you wanna giving it all away?
Hey hey hey, now you wanna give it
Ah she wanna give it
'Cause she giving it all away
Now, now, I don't wanna give it, why you wanna give it
Why you wanna giving it all away?
Giving it all, giving it all away
Yeah, yeah

Why you want me?
Why do you want me?
She giving it all away, hey hey hey
Hey, paved paradise to put up a parking lot

La la la la la, na na na na
