Lovely Rita, meter maid!  Lovely Rita, meter maid!


[Verse 1]
  D            C    G       D                    A
Lovely Rita, meter maid, nothing can come be - tween us,
 Bm                   E         E7       A7
When it gets dark, I tow your heart a - way----!

[Verse 2]
D                   G             C                     F
    Standing by a parking meter,     when I caught a glimpse of Rita,
    D                        A7
Filling in a ticket in her little white book,
D                  G               C                   F
   In a cap she looked much older,   and the bag, a - cross her shoulder,
 D                              A7              D  Bm   E   A7
Made her look a little like a military man!  |  /   /   /   /  |

Lovely Rita, meter maid, may I enquire, dis - creetly,
                        (Love------------ly    Rita!)

When are you free to take some tea with me------------------------?

[Verse 4]
D                      G                C
   Took her out, and tried to win her,     had a laugh,
      F              D                             A7
And over dinner ...told her I would really like to see her again,
D                     G             C
   Got the bill, and Rita paid it,     took her home,
    F                D                       A7
I nearly made it, sitting on a sofa with a sister or two!
D  Bm  E   A7
       Oh, oh-----!

[Verse 5]
  D            C    G       D                    A7
Lovely Rita, meter maid, where would I be with - out you?
  Bm                  E       E7      A               G
Give us a wink, and make me think of you----, lovely meter maid!
                                   (Lovely---  Ri-----ta, meter maid!)

    D           A            A7             G
 Lovely Rita!                   Oh, lovely Rita,        meter maid!
