Handwritten Lyrics of Lovely Rita, Meter Maid. The Beatles, Paul McCartney.

Handwritten Lyrics of Lovely Rita, Meter Maid

1967. McCartney’s handwritten, working manuscript (as Beatle) for Lovely Rita from the album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (the most famous album in the entire panorama of modern music). This is the very first (rough) draft, 10 lines (in ink) all written on a single side of an irregular scrap of lined paper (7 1/2” X 5”) torn from a spiral notebook. 7 lines in black are Paul’s first concept. 3 lines of changes have been added later in blue, such as, “writing all the numbers in her little black book” changed to “filling in a ticket with her little blue pen” and still later recorded as “filling in a ticket in her little white book.” Near fine. Sumptuously matted, and framed (UV) with a full size, uncorrected proof photograph of the album cover. Ex–Butterfield’s, 12 Dec, 1993. Icon time. “Lovely Rita, meter maid, nothing can come between us...”. Near fine. Item #245
