Lovely Rita
The Beatles Lyrics


(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)

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

We could do so much better than this
Emotionally in fences and momentary bliss
We could do so much better than this
Oh, Rita, oh, Rita

[Segue: 2-D]
Lovely Rita, meter maid

Bruh my name is Rita and I share the same Bday as Paul McCartney. This song has followed me my entire life. Purely incidental blessing/curse on my oldass parents' part hahaha

“This is how we do it in Haiti” the beauty queen informed
a moment before slamming a For Sale sign in my face.

Didn't read all the comments but she passed a few years back. I had head injury so years get mixed but anyway, Beatle Paul immortalized her. ❤
On literally by definition one of the greatest records ever.

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.

@mike brink Standing by a parking meter when I thought I'd beat my peter, so I ducked on in to a telephone booth. In the dark it looked much longer, made me feel a whole lot stronger, made me feel more line a man.
