[B] (Ahhhh...aaa)   |[A]             [B]
[B]Lovely Rita [A]meter maid      Lovely Rita [B]meter maid
[E]Lovely Rita [D]meter [A]maid [E]nothing can come be[B]tween us
[C#m]When it gets dark I [F#7]tow your heart a[B]way
[E]Standing by a [A]parking meter [D] when I caught a [G]glimpse of Rita
[E]filling in a ticket in her [B]little white book
[E]In a cap when [A]looked much [D]older, and the bag [G]across her shoulder
[C#m]made her look a little like a [F#m7]military man
[E] [C#m] [F#7]  [B7]
[E]Lovely Rita [D]meter [A]maid [E]may I enquire dis[B]creetly
[C#m]When are you [F#7]free to take some tea [B]with me?
[B] (Ahhhh..., metermaid)   |[A]  (Lovely Rita, metermaid)             [B]
Ah Rita!
CHORUS
[E] [D] [A] [E]       [B]
[C#m]   [F#7]     [B]
[E]Took her out [A]and tried to win her, [D]had a laugh, and [G]over dinner
[E]told her I would really like to [B]see her again
[E]Got the bill [A]and Rita paid it, [D]took her home, I [G]nearly made it,
[C#m]sitting on the sofa [F#7]with a sister or two
[E] [C#m] [F#7]  [B7]
Oh, [E]lovely Rita, [D]meter maid, [A]where would I be [B]without you?
[C#m]Give us a wink and [F#7]make me think of [B]you
[B] (Ahhhh..., metermaid)   |[A]  (Lovely Rita, metermaid)             [B]  
[B] (Lovely Rita, metermaid)    |[A]  (Lovely Rita, metermaid!)             [B]
