They Paved Paradise...

....And besides, one doesn't really "put up" a parking lot, does one? I mean once the paving's done, all you really have to do is paint some lines....OK and maybe "put up" a kiosk for the parking lot guy to stand in. But if that's what you meant, that should have been reflected in the lyrics. I have always hated this song because of its' flagrant assault on logic. It should be, "They paved paradise, painted some lines delineating parking spots, built a kiosk for the guy to stand in, then posted a sign outside letting everyone know it was a parking lot". How would this fit into a nice tune? Not my problem. I'm not the songwriter here.
