    Big Yellow Taxi by Counting Crows

    It’s a remake of an old Joni Mitchell song.

    The best version is the one that is ONLY the Counting Crows, and not the more popular version with Michelle Branch.

    Vanessa Carlson also did a remake of it, but the one you are talking about is the Counting Crows, and it’s WAY better.

    Other Counting Crows you should check out:

    The line you have stuck in your head is actually “They paved paradise, and put up a parking lot.”

    counting crows – big yellow taxi

    they paved paradise and put up a parking lot

    With a pink hotel, a boutique, and a swingin’ hot spot

    Don’t it always seem to go

    That you don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone

    They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

    Ooooh, bop bop bop

    Ooooh, bop bop bop

    They took all the trees, and put em in a tree museum

    And they charged the people a dollar and a half to see them

    No, no, no

    Don’t it always seem to go

    That you don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone

    They paved paradise, and put up a parking lot

    Ooooh, bop bop bop

    Ooooh, bop bop bop

    Hey farmer, farmer, put away your DDT

    I don’t care about spots on my apples,

    Leave me the birds and the bees

    Please

    Don’t it always seem to go

    That you don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone

    They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

    Hey now, they paved paradise to put up a parking lot

    Why not?

    Ooooh, bop bop bop

    Ooooh, bop bop bop

    Listen, late last night, I heard the screen door slam

    And a big yellow taxi took my girl away

    Don’t it always seem to go

    That you don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone

    They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

    Well, don’t it always seem to go

    That you don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone

    They paved paradise to put up a parking lot

    Why not?
