Lyric:

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 till it's gone
They paved paradise
and put up a parking lot
They took all the trees
and put 'em in a tree museum
And then they charged all the people
twentyfive bucks just to see 'em
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got till it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
Hey farmer, farmer, put away your 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 till it's gone
They paved paradise and they put up a parking lot
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got till it's gone
They paved paradise
and they put up a parking lot (Shoo-bop-bop)
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've got till it's gone
They paved paradise and they put up a parking lot
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got till it's gone
They paved paradise and they put up a parking lot
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got till it's gone
