#192 - Parking Meters at avenida Guerra Junqueiro


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

"Lovely Rita" is a song by The Beatles performed on the album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, written and sung by Paul McCartney
