Texte :

They paved paradise, they put up a parking lot,
A big hotel, a boutique,
And a swinging hot spot.

Don’t it always go to show
You’ll 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 ’em in a tree museum.
They charged the people
A dollar and a half just to see ’em.

Don’t it always go to show
You’ll 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’ll 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 the land.

Don’t it always go to show
You’ll never know what you got till it’s gone ?
They paved paradise, they put up a parking lot.

[Reprise d’une chanson de Joni Mitchell]
