They paved paradise
Put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique
And a swinging hot spot

[Chorus:]
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know
What you've got til it's gone
They paved paradise
Put up a parking lot
Shoo bop bop bop bop
Shoo bop bop bop bop

They took all the trees
Put em in a tree museum
And they charged the people
A dollar and a half just to see em

[Chorus:]

Hey, farmer, farmer
Put away that D. D. T. Now
Give me spots on my apples
But leave me the birds
And the bees, please

[Chorus:]

Late last night
I heard the screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi
Took away my old man

[Chorus:]

I said
[Chorus:]

They paved paradise
Put up a parking lot
Shoo bop bop bop bop
They paved paradise
Put up a parking lot
