 AEEsusEEsusE
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot               
 ABE
With a pink hotel, a boutique and a swingin' hot spot

CHORUS:
 E
Don't it always seem to go
 AN.C.
That you don't know what you've got till it's gone
 ABE
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
 EsusEEsusEEsusEEsusE
(Choo     bop bop bop bop, choo     bop bop bop bop)

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

CHORUS

Hey farmer farmer, put away that D.D.T. now
Give me spots on my apples but leave me the birds and the bees
please

CHORUS

Late last night I heard the screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi took away my old man

CHORUS TWICE (with only one chooo bop... at each end)

They paved paradise, put up a parking lot (choo bop bop bop bop)
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot
