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,
SDitting 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

(B)Lovely Rita (A)meter maid
