Big Yellow Taxi

In the style of

Amy Grant

Lyrics

they paved paradise
put up a parkin' 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 got
till it's gone
they paved paradise
and put up a
parkin' lot

they took
all the trees
and put 'em in
a tree museum
and then they charged
all the people
twenty-five bucks
just to see 'em

and don't it
always seem to go
that you don't know
what you got
till it's gone
they paved paradise
and put up a
parkin' lot

hey farmer farmer
put away
your d.d.t. now
hey 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
till it's gone

they paved paradise
and they
put up a parkin' lot
i say
they paved paradise
and put up a
parkin' lot

don't it
always seem to go
that you don't know
what you got
till it's gone

they paved paradise
and they
put up a parkin' lot
late last night
i heard
the screen door slam
and a big yellow taxi
carried off my old man

don't it
always seem to go
that you don't know
what you got
till it's gone
they paved paradise
and they
put up a parkin' lot

don't it
always seem to go
that you don't know
what you got
till it's gone
they paved paradise
and they
put up a parkin' lot

oh man then they
paved paradise and
put up a parkin' lot
hey steamrolled
paradise
and put up a
parkin' lot
