Lovely Rita

Album: Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band


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. 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.


An American freind of Paul's said to him "I see you've got meter maids over here these days". Paul liked the sound of "meter maid" and decided to do a song about it. He said: "I was thinking it should be a hate song .. but then I thought it would be better to love her." The song is a story about someone who seduces a meter maid in oreder to get off a fine.
