Lyrics and Chords

Intro:
A | G   | D | A
      Aaa-aah
              G
Lovely Rita, meter maid,
 D            A
Lovely Rita, meter maid.

Verse 1:
 D            C     G
Lovely Rita, meter maid,
 D                   A
Nothing can come between us;
  Bm                  E7              A
When it gets dark, I tow your heart away.

Bridge 1:
D                G
  Standing by a parking meter,
C                   F
  When I caught a glimpse of Rita,
 D                                  A
Filling in a ticket in her little white book.

D               G
  In a cap she looked much older,
C                F
  And the bag across her shoulder
 D                             A
Made her look a little like a milit'ry man.

Instrumental 1:
D Bm Em7 A7
     O-o-oh,

Verse 2:
 D            C     G
Lovely Rita, meter maid,
 D                 A
May I inquire discreetly,
   Bm                  E7                 A ->
"When you are free to take some tea with me?"

Instrumental 2:
A G/A | F#m/A Em/A | D6 | A7
                     Aaaaaah. Rita.
D D C G | D A7 | Bm E7 | A7

Bridge 2:
D                    G
  Took her out and tried to win her,
C                  F
  Had a laugh, and over dinner
 D                               A
Told her I would really like to see her again.

D                   G
  Got the bill and Rita paid it,
C                   F
  Took her home, I nearly made it,
 D                          A
Sitting on the sofa with a sister or two.

[Instrumental 1]

Verse 3:
 D           C     G
Lovely Rita meter maid,
  D                  A
Where would I be without you?
 Bm                 E7               A
Give us a wink and make me think of you.

Coda:
              G
Lovely Rita, meter maid,
 D            A
Lovely Rita, meter maid.
