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 go till it's gone?
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.
(Woo, pa - pa - pa - pa, Woo, pa - pa - pa - pa)
They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum,
And they charged all the people a dollar and a half just to see 'em.
Hey, farmer, farmer, Put away that D.D.T. now,
Give me spots on my apples but leave the birds and the bees. Please!
Late last night I heard the screen door slam,
And a Big Yellow Taxi took away my old man (lady)
