The Lyrics

They took the Nets and moved to Brooklyn
Into a big arena with a shiny floor and an underground gym
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got till it's gone
They took the Nets and moved to Brooklyn

Ooh, bop bop bop, ooh, bop bop bop

They took the Devils, and built a new hockey rink
And they even built a shopping mall in a wink
No, no, no
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got till it's gone
They took the Nets and moved to Brooklyn

Ooh, bop bop bop, ooh, bop bop bop

Hey, New Jersey, you still got the Giants and Jets
I don't care about the Knicks or the Yankees
Maybe we can take the Mets from Queens
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got till it's gone
Oh man, they took the Nets and moved them to Brooklyn (Come on!)

Ooh, bop bop bop, ooh, bop bop bop

Listen, late last night, I heard a train pass by
And a big moving truck took the Nets away
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got till it's gone
They took the Nets and moved to Brooklyn
Hey don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you got till it's gone
They took the Nets and moved to Brooklyn (Come on!)
They took the Nets and moved to Brooklyn (Hey hey hey)
Moved the New Jersey Nets to Brooklyn

Ooh, bop bop bop, ooh, bop bop bop

I don't wanna give it, why you wanna give it, why you wanna give it all away? (Hey hey hey)
Now you wanna give it, I should wanna give it, now you wanna give it all away
Hey, they moved the New Jersey Nets to Brooklyn...

Hey, good one. However, I think the song is credited as performed by the Counting Crows only. Vanessa Carlton only provides backing vocals; I don't think it's enough to consider it a duet though.

I think you forgot to vote, ellipsis.

I can't get past the point where you left the hook in ("you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone).

on the album it says Counting Crows feat. Vanessa Carlton
