    Lyrics

    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
    Come 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
