Big Yellow Taxi

Friday, April 05, 2013

Continuing the rainbow - today is yellow!
Written and recorded by Joni Mitchell in 1970.


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 til 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 all 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 til it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot



Hey farmer, farmer, put away that 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 til it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot


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 til 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 til it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot (3x)
