   nothing can come between us
   Ami                 D7             G7
   when it gets dark I tow your heart away.

1. Standing by a parking meter
   B              Eb
   when I caught a glimpse of Rita
   C                          G7
   filling in a ticket in her little white book.
   C            F
   In a cap she looked much older
   B           Eb
   and the bag across her shoulder
   C                               G7
   made her look a little like a military man.

   may I inquire discreetly
   when are you free
      D7                 G7
   to take some tea with me.
2. 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 some 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.
