Album: Ladies of the Canyon
This song discusses some of the downfalls of capitalism and commercialism.
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
Till it's gone They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
Key Words: Joni Mitchell, Big Yellow Taxi, Classism
