“Big Yellow Taxi” by Joni Mitchell

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 till it’s gone

Paved paradise, put up a parking lot

The big yellow taxi
The big yellow taxi
The big yellow taxi
The big yellow taxi

Paved paradise, 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
Paved paradise, put up a parking lot

The big yellow taxi
The big yellow taxi
The big yellow taxi
The big yellow taxi

Took all the trees, 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 till it’s gone
Paved paradise, put up a parking lot

The big yellow taxi

Hey farmer, farmer, put away that DDT now
Give me spots on my apples
But leave me the birds and the bees
Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone
Paved paradise, put up a parking lot

The big yellow taxi
The big yellow taxi
The big yellow taxi
The big yellow taxi

The big yellow taxi
The big yellow taxi

“Alternative” Lyrics 25

“Mine Mine Mine” by Mel Gibson, David Ogden Stiers, and Disney Studio Chorus from Pocahontas

[Ratcliffe]
The gold of Cortes
The jewels of Pizarro
Will seem like mere trinkets
By this time tomorrow
The gold we find here
Will dwarf them by far
Oh, with all ya got in ya, boys
Dig up Virginia, boys

Mine, boys, mine ev’ry mountain
And dig, boys, dig ’til ya drop
Grab a pick, boys
Quick, boys
Shove in a shovel
Uncover those lovely
Pebbles that sparkle and shine
It’s gold and it’s mine, mine, mine

[English Settlers]
Dig and dig and dig and diggety …
Dig and dig and dig and diggety …

[Wiggins]
Hey nonny nonny
Ho nonny nonny

[Ratcliffe]
Oh, how I love it!

[Wiggins]
Hey nonny nonny
Ho nonny nonny

[Ratliffe]
Riches for Cheap!

[Wiggins]
Hey nonny nonny
Ho nonny nonny

[Ratcliffe and Wiggins]
There’ll be heaps of it …

[Ratcliffe]
And I’ll be on top of the heap!

My rivals back home
It’s not that I’m bitter
But think how they’ll squirm
When they see how I glitter!
The ladies at court
Will be all a-twitter
The king will reward me
He’ll knight me … no, lord me!

It’s mine, mine, mine
For the taking
It’s mine, boys
Mine me that gold!
With those nuggets dug it…

It’s glory they’ll gimme
My dear friend, King Jimmy
Will probably build me a shrine

[Ratcliffe and Wiggins]
When all of the gold…

[Ratcliffe]
Is mine

[English Settlers]
Dig and dig and dig and diggety
Dig and dig and dig and diggety-dig!

[Smith]
All of my life, I have searched for a land
Like this one
A wilder, more challenging country
I couldn’t design
Hundreds of dangers await
And I don’t plan to miss one
In a land I can claim
A land I can tame
The greatest adventure is mine!

[Ratcliffe/English Settlers]
Keep on working, lands/Mine
Don’t be shirking, lands/Find a mother lode
Mine, boys, mind/Then find another load!
Mine me that gold/Dig! Dig! and diggety
Beautiful gold/Dig! Dig! for that gold

[All]
Make this island
My land!

[Ratcliffe]
Make the mounds big, boys
I’d help you to dig, boys
But I’ve got this crick in me spine

[Smith]
This land we behold …

[Ratcliffe]
This beauty untold …

[Smith]
A man can be bold!

[Ratcliffe]
It all can be sold!

[Ratcliffe/English Settlers ]

And the gold
Is …/So go for the gold
Mine!/We know which is here
Mine!/All the riches here
Mine!/From this minute
Mine!/This land and what’s in it is
Mine!

[Ratcliffe, Wiggins, and English Settlers]
Dig and dig and diggety-dig!
Hey nonny nonny nonny it’s mine!
