.

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 and nearly made it

Sitting on a sofa with a sister or two

.

Lovely Rita meter maid

where would I be without you

give us a wink and make me think of you

.

Lovely meter maid

Rita meter maid

oh, Lovely Rita meter, meter maid
