"Big Yellow Taxi" as written by and Joni Mitchell....
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 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 please!
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got til it's gone?
They paved paradise put up a parking lot.
Late last night I heard a screen door a 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.
