Verse 1
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique
And a swinging hot spot
Verse 2
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got til its gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
Verse 3
They took all the trees
And put 'em in a tree museum
And they charged the people
A dollar and a half to seem 'em
Verse 4
No no no
Don't it always seem to go,
That you don't know what you've got
Til its gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Hey farmer farmer
Put away the DDT
I don't care about spots on my apples
Leave me the birds and the bees
Please!
Verse 6
Don't it always seem to go

And put up a parking lot

Verse 7
Listenin' late last night
I heard the screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi
Took my girl away
Now, don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Til its gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Hey now, now
Don't it always seem to go

Hey hey hey
Paved paradise
To put up a parking lot

Hey pave paradise
Put up a parking lot
