Big Yellow Taxi  Joni Mitchell

A Asus A Asus A B Bsus B Bsus B E Esus E Esus E
They pa[A]ved paradise and put up a park[E]ing lo[Esus]t [E] [Esus] [E]
With a pi[A]nk hotel, a bou[B]tique and a swingin' h[E]ot spot
D[E]on't it always seem to go
That you d[A]on't know what you've got till it's go[(n.c.)]ne
They pa[A]ved paradise and p[B]ut up a parking l[E]ot
(C[Esus]hoo [E] [Esus]bop bop bop [E]bop, ch[Esus]oo [E] b[Esus]op bop bop b[E]op)
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
Hey farmer farmer, put away that D.D.T. now
Give me spots on my apples but leave me the birds and the bees
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
