Lovely Rita
by The Beatles

(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

(Lovely Rita, meter maid)
(Lovely Rita, meter maid)
(Lovely Rita, meter maid)
(Lovely Rita, meter maid)

Fun Fact. Paul McCartney got a parking ticket from a meter maid before he made the song,he was so surprised by how beautiful the female trafic cop looked. He accepted the ticket with grace, he named the song after a female trafic warden who was very beautiful.


He. Does say she looked like a military man so maybe he was trying to come out of the closet

Luc Ardyns

McCartney denies this, however


Crawford, Paul is a better man than me. I never was so joyous getting a ticket
no matter who gave it to me.:) I included this song on my eclectic playlist filled
with forgotten treasures & hidden gems, from all era's & different styles. I hope
YOU & all who love good music but aren't pigeon holed into a narrow range enjoy!
