LO VELY RITA
lamely Rita meter maid.
Lovely Rita meter maid.
Nothing can come between us,
it gets dark I tow your heart away.
Standing by a parking meter,
I a glimpse of Rita,
Filling in a ticket in her little white book.
In cap she looked much older,
And the bag across her shoulder
Made her look a little like a military man.
I.ovely Rita meter maid,
May I inquire discreetly,
When are you free,
To lake some tea with me.
TOOk her to win her,
Had a laugh and ovcr dinner,
Told her would really like to gee her
Got the bill and Rita paid it,
Took her homc nearly made it,
Sitting on sofa with a sister or two.
Oh, lovely mr•tcr maid,
Where would I be without you,
Give a Wink make me think

A DAY IN THE LIFE
I read the today
About a lucky man who made the grade
And though the news was rather sad
Well I just had to laugh
I saw the photograph.
He blew his mind out in a car
He didn't notice that lights had
A crowd of people stood stared
They'd seen his face before
Nobody was really sure
If he was from thc House of Lords.
saw a today Oh boy
ftc English Army had just won the war
A crowd Of people turned away
But I just had to look
Having read the book.
I'd to turn you on
Woke up, rell out of bed,
Dragged a my hcad
Found my way downstairs and drank a
And looking up I noticed I was late.
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in secu3ncIs flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke,
Somebody spoke and I went into a dream
I read the news today Oh boy
Four thousand holes in Blackburn,
And though tbc holes were rather small
They had LO them
Now they know how many holes it takes
to fill the Albert Hall.
I'd love to turn you on
