CHORUS

B           A               
Lovely Rita meter maid     
            B
Lovely Rita meter maid
E           D     A    E                  B
Lovely Rita meter maid nothing can come between us
C#m                 F#7             B
When it gets dark I tow your heart away


E             A             D                G
Standing by a parking meter  when I caught a glimpse of Rita
E                          B
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

|E C#m F#m7 B7|

E           D     A    E                D
Lovely Rita meter maid may I enquire discreetly
C#m                  F#7               |B   A/B   |G#m/B   F#m/B   |
When are you free to take some tea with me?
E6/B        B7          |E    D A|E   B7   |E   F#7   |B7          |
Ah                Rita

CHORUS

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

CHORUS
