BIG YELLOW TAXI Lyrics - Joni Mitchell

Review The Song (2)



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
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 the D.D.T. 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
Till it's gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Late last night
I heard my 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

I said don't it always seem to go
that you dont 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

no one can make it sound better than Joni | Reviewer: sarahfan | 6/17/2006

many originals are better than the covers.
especially with this song.
no matter how many times you say Counting Crows did the better version, i will strongly disagree and try to knock some sense in to you.
JONI ROX!!
and dont forget it

Song of no change Hit | Reviewer: Miguel | 8/3/2005

As some obscure singer can re-use this premonitory song of the echological disaster to come (seen from the 60's), this seems an everlasting hit, even when only Joni can tell it with the right tempo and jazzy tone.

In a few words she's the one who can tell so strongly some of the major problems for the human race, with the most beautiful music and one of the nicest voices ever used for such a message.

Happily we can listen to her ferever, no other versions bring anything new whatever they do.
