"Lovely Rita" Lyrics

by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

As Released by the Beatles (1967)


Lovely Rita meter maid
Lovely Rita meter maid (aah)
Lovely Rita (oh) 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 ((lovely Rita))
When are you free ((lovely Rita))
To take some tea with me? ((maid))
Ooo - ooo.

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 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.

Lovely Rita ((lovely meter maid))
Lovely ((Rita, Rita, Rita)) Rita meter maid
Lovely Rita ((oh lovely Rita meter, meter maid)) meter maid
Lovely Rita ((da da da da da da)) meter maid
Da da da da da da da da - da
Da da da - da - da - da - da - wuh - oh
Ah - ah - ah (oh) - ah - ah - ah - ah - ah - ah - ah
