Nena Big Yellow Taxi Liedtext

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 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

Till it’s gone

They paved paradise

And put up a parking lot

Hey farmer farmer

Put away that DDT now

And 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 put up a parking lot

(They paved paradise)

(They paved paradise)

Late last night

I heard the screen door slam

And a big yellow taxi

Took away 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 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 put up a parking lot

They paved paradise

And put up a parking lot

They paved paradise

And put up a parking lot

(They paved paradise)

(They paved paradise)

(They paved paradise)

(They paved paradise)
