Counting Crows – 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 youve got til its gone
they paved paradise
and put up a parking lot

they took all the trees
and put ’em in a tree museum
and they charged the people
a dollar and a half to see them

don’t it always seem to go,
that you don’t know what youve got
til its gone
they paved paradise
and put up a parking lot

hey farmer farmer
put away the DDT
i dont 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 youve got
til its gone
they paved paradise
and put up a parking lot
hey, now they paved paradise
to put up a parking lot
why not?

listenin’ 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
til its 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 got
til its gone
they paved paradise
to put up a parking lot

i dont want give it-
why you want give,
why you want give it all away?
hey hey hey
now you want give it,
ah she wanna give it
cause she givin it all away
now now now

Hey pave paradise
put up a parking lot
