(Lovely Rita, maid, ah) 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, Rita meter maid (Lovely Rita meter maid) Oh Lovely Rita meter meter maid (Lovely Rita meter maid) Ah da, ah da (Lovely Rita meter maid) INTRO G|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| D|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| A|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| E|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| Aaaaaaah G|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| D|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| A|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| E|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| CHORUS G|----7-------10------7-------10-|----5-------8-------5-------8--| D|8-------8-------8-------8------|6-------6-------6-------6------| A|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| E|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| Lovely Rita meter maid G|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| D|----5-------8-----------5---6--|8---8---8---8---8---8---8---8--| A|6-------6-------6---6----------|-------------------------------| E|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| Lovely Rita meter maid PRE-VERSE G|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| D|------------------------6------|-------------------------------| A|6-------6-------4---------4-6--|6---6---4---3-----------5------| E|-------------------------------|----------------6---6-------6--| Lovely Rita meter maid nothing come us can between G|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| D|----------------3--------------|----------------8---8---6---5--| A|3---5---6---3-------6---5---3--|--------5---8------------------| E|-------------------------------|6---6--------------------------| When dark tow your away it I heart gets VERSE G|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| D|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| A|6---4---3-----------3---6---3--|4-------------------1---4---1--| E|------------6---4--------------|----7---6---4---2--------------| Standing a parking when a glimpse by meter I caught of Rita G|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| D|--------5---6---8---8---8---8--|-------------------------------| A/6---6--------------------------|6---4---3-----------3---6---3--| E|-------------------------------|------------6---4--------------| Filling ticket little book In cap she older in in white a looked a her much G|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| D|----3---6---3---4--------------|--------5---6---8-------8------| A|4-------------------6---4------|6---6---------------8-------8--| E|----------------------------6--|-------------------------------| And bag across shoulder made a little milit'ry the her her like man look a G|-------------------------------| D|-------------------------------| A|6---6-----------8---8----------| E|--------8---8-----------6---6--| CHORUS G|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| D|----8-------8-------6----------|--------5---6---8-------8------| A|6-------6-------4-----------6--|6---6---------------8-------8--| E|------------------------4------|-------------------------------| Lovely Rita meter maid may inquire discreetly I G|-------------------------------|-------------------------------| D|----------------3--------------|----------------8---8---8------| A|3---5---6---3-------6---5---3--|--------5---8---------------8--| E|-------------------------------|6---6--------------------------| when free take tea with are to some me?
