They paved paradise, they put up a parking lot
A pink hotel, a boutique and a swinging hotspot
Don't it always go to show
You never know what you got till it's gone?
They paved paradise, they put up a parking lot

They took all the trees, they put them in a tree museum
They charged the people a dollar and a half just to see them
Don't it always go to show
You never know what you got till it's gone?
They paved paradise, they put up a parking lot

Hey farmer, farmer, put away that D.D.T.
Give me spots on my apples but leave me the birds and the bees, please
Don't it always go to show
You never know what you got till it's gone?
They paved paradise, they put up a parking lot

Late last night I heard my screen door slam
A big yellow bulldozer took away the house and land
Don't it always go to show
You never know what you got till it's gone?
They paved paradise, they put up a parking lot

They paved paradise, they put up a parking lot
They paved paradise, they put up a parking lot
They paved paradise, they put up a parking lot
