    Lyrics

    [Adam Duritz]
    They paved paradise and put up a parking 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 'til it's gone
    They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

    [Vanessa Carlton]
    Ooooh, bop bop bop
    Ooooh, bop bop bop

    [Adam]
    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
    No, no, no
    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

    [Vanessa]
    Ooooh, bop bop bop
    Ooooh, bop bop bop

    [Adam]
    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 got 'til 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?

    [Vanessa]
    Ooooh, bop bop bop
    Ooooh, bop bop bop

    [Adam]
    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 got 'til it's gone
    They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
    Well, don't it always seem to go
    That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
    They paved paradise to put up a parking lot
    Why not?
    They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
    Hey hey hey
    Paved paradise and put up a parking lot

    [Vanessa]
    Ooooh, bop bop bop
    Ooooh, bop bop bop

    [Adam, Vanessa]
    I don't wanna give it
    Why you wanna give it
    Why you wanna giving it all away
    Hey, hey, hey
    x2
    Now you wanna give it
    I should wanna give it
    Now you wanna giving it all away

    Hey, paved paradise to put up a parking lot

    [Vanessa]
    Why you wan it?
    x2
    da da dada da da da da da
