YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’VE GOT ‘TIL IT’S GONE

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
‘Til it’s gone.
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot.

They took all the trees
And put them in a tree museum.
Then 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
‘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’ve got
‘Til its gone.
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot.

Late last night
I heard the screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi
Came and 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
And put up a parking lot.

I said
Don’t it always seem to go
That you 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.
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot.
