Samuel’s Blog Weekly Poll: Industrial Relations Insane Report!

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

April 29th, 2007 at 07:11pm

This week the award goes to a woman with an incredibly recognisable and unique voice, Joni Mitchell, and the feature song is probably her most recognisable song…it’s been redone by many people since Joni released it in 1970, but as far as I’m concerned nobody can sing it as well as her.

The song, if you haven’t worked it out already, is Big Yellow Taxi. Wikipedia has plenty of information about it.

They paved paradise
Put up a parkin’ 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 its gone
They paved paradise
Put up a parkin’ lot
(True, bop bop bop bop)
(True, bop bop bop bop)

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

Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got
‘Til its gone
They paved paradise
Put up a parkin’ lot
(True, bop bop bop bop)
(True, bop bop bop bop)

Hey farmer farmer
Put away that D.D.T. 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
Put up a parkin’ lot
(True, bop bop bop bop)
(True, bop bop bop bop)

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 its gone
They paved paradise
Put up a parkin’ lot
(True, bop bop bop bop)

I said
Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got
‘Til its gone
They paved paradise
Put up a parkin’ lot
(True, bop bop bop bop)
They paved paradise
Put up a parking lot
(True, bop bop bop bop)
(High pitched) They paved paradise
(Low picthed) Put up a parking lot
Hahaha
