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 the 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 to take some tea with me? (Lovely Rita maid)


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 and 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

Rita, meter maid
(Lovely Rita, meter maid) oh, lovely Rita meter, meter maid
(Lovely Rita, meter maid)

This is a brilliant song about existential absurdity, from the number one album of all time...
