They raved ‘paradise’
And put in a coffee shop
A green hotel, a speech zone
And a Wi-Fi hot spot
Don’t it always seem to go
That they don’t know what they’ve got
Til it’s gone
They raved ‘paradise’
And put in a coffee shop
They took all our freedoms
Put ’em in a free museum
And they charged all the people
Ten dollars and a half just to see ’em
Don’t it always seem to go
That they don’t know what they’ve got
Til it’s gone
They raved ‘paradise’
And put in a coffee shop
Hey teacher teacher
Put away that knowledge now
Give me indoctrination
And legislate the birds and the bees
Please!
Don’t it always seem to go
That they don’t know what they’ve got
Til it’s gone
They raved ‘paradise’
And put in a coffee shop
Late last night
My pillow queen took the slam
And a big yellow taxi
Took away my old man
Don’t it always seem to go
That they don’t know what they’ve got
Til it’s gone
They raved ‘paradise’
And put in a coffee shop
They raved ‘paradise’
And put in a coffee shop
