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
