Lovely Rita (Lennon-McCartney)

Lovely Rita meter maid.
Lovely Rita meter maid.

Lovely Rita meter maid.
Nothing can come between us,
When it gets dark I tow your heart away.

Standing by a parking meter,
When I caught a glimpse of Rita,
Filling in a ticket in her little white book.

In a cap she looked much older,
And the bag across her shoulder
Made her look a little like a military man.

Lovely Rita meter maid,
May I inquire discreetly,
When you are free,
To take some tea with me.

Took her out and tried to win her,
Had a laugh and over dinner,
Told her I would really like to see her again.

Got the bill and Rita paid it
Took her home and nearly made it
Sitting on a sofa with a sister or two.

Oh, lovely Rita meter maid,
Where would I be without you.
Give us a wink and make me think of you
