I know that I have spoken about this song already in my first post.
But this song is such a big favourite of mine that I had to post
the lyrics in this post. But I still feel that the song title
could have been better than "Big Yellow Taxi".:)


They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique
And a swinging 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
And put up a parking lot

They took all the trees
And put them in a tree museum
And they charged the people
A dollar and a half just to seem 'em
Don't it always seem to go,
That you don't know what you’ve got
‘Til it’s gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Hey farmer, farmer
Put away that DDT now
Give me spots on my apples
But 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 its gone
They paved paradise
And 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
And put up a parking lot

I said
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you’ve got
‘Til it’s gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Good song, I dont get it is most of the song is sung by counting crows and few lyrics by Vanessa Carlton. They should have used her more in the song. :).

Few other nice songs
1) Counting Crows is Accidentally in Love...
2) Monkee's - I'm a believer

and as usual list goes on n on .....

Thanks, mahesh, for suggesting other good songs.

Yes, even I wondered about Vanessa's role in the song.:)
