I can't believe Eli and Bob don't know this.  You're both thinking of Joni
Mitchell's "Big Yellow Taxi":
"Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got till it's gone
They take paradise and put up a parking lot...."

The sad thing is that you guys have radio jobs and I don't.  (sigh)
