The Beatles - Lovely Rita
Tekst en muziek: Paul McCartney
(1967)






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 are you free to take some tea with me
Rita



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, I nearly made it
Sitting on the 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



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