Harry Styles – Big Yellow Taxi Lyrics

Big Yellow Taxi By Harry Styles (Originally By Joni Mitchell)

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’ve got ’til it’s gone?
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot
(Shoo-bop-bop-bop-bop
Shoo-bop-bop-bop-bop)

They took all the trees, put ’em in a tree museum
And they charged everybody a dollar and a half just to see ’em

Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone?
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot
Shoo-bop-bop-bop-bop
Shoo-bop-bop-bop-bop
Shoo-bop-bop-bop-bop
Shoo-bop-bop-bop-bop

Hey farmer, farmer, put away the DDT now
Give me spots on my apples
Just leave me the birds and the bees, please

Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone?
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot

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

Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone?
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot
Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got ’til it’s gone?
2,3,4
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot
They paved paradise, put up a parking lot
