The Lyrics

the puckand paradise have nothing in common, yet they share such a strong relationship to each other in this song. think of it as the puck's owner narrating a rhyming story. enjoy...
The big paradise and put up a puck in line
With a taco bell, a booty, and a swingin' hot lawn
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
The big paradise and put up a puck in line

[Vanessa Carlton]
Ooooh, bop bop bop
Ooooh, bop bop bop

[Adam]
They took all the trees, and put em in a tree amusement
And they charged the people a dollar and a half to see them
No, no, no
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
the big paradise, and put up a puck in line

[Vanessa]
Ooooh, bop bop bop
Ooooh, bop bop bop

[Adam]
Hey farmer, farmer, put away your PP 4 me
I don't care about spots on my apples,
Leave me the birds and the bees
Please
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
Hey now, the big paradise and put up a puck in line
Why not?

[Vanessa]
Ooooh, bop bop bop
Ooooh, bop bop bop

[Adam]
Listen, late last night, I heard the screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi took my hockey stick away
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
The big paradise put up a puck in line
Well, don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
The big paradise put up a puck in line
Why not?
The big paradise put up a puck in line
Hey hey hey
big paradise put up a puck in line

[Vanessa]
Ooooh, bop bop bop
Ooooh, bop bop bop

[Adam, Vanessa]
I don't wanna give
Why you wanna give
Why you wanna giving all away
Hey, hey, hey
Now you wanna give
I should wanna give
Now you wanna giving it all away

hey, big paradise put up a puck in line


by a nine year-old. sigh...

If you're really nine, I'm impressed. Kind of a misheard lyric thing, I guess.

Don't it always seem to go that Anime Kid doesn't know who Joni Mitchell is. And Vanessa Carlton has a bit more talent than that.
