Rita May, Rita May
You got your body in the way
You're so damn nonchalant
But it's your mind that i want
You got me huffin' an' puffin'
Next to you i feel like nothin'
Rita May.

Rita May, Rita May
How'd you ever get that way?
Don't you ever see the light?
Don't you ever feel a fright?
You got me burnin' an i'm turnin'
But i know i must be learnin'
Rita May.

All my friends have told me
If i hang around with you that i'll go blind
But when you hold me 
I know there must be somethin' on your mind.

Rita May, Rita May
Won't you come out an' play
Don't you remember where you been?
What's that crazy place you're in?
I'm gonna have to go to college
'Cause you are the book of knowledge
Rita May.

All my friends have told me
If i hang around with you that i'll go blind
But i know when you hold me 
That there really must be somethin' on your mind.

Rita May, Rita May
You got your body in the way
You're so damn nonchalant
It's your mind that i want
I'm gonna have to go to college
'Cause you are the book of knowledge
Rita May.  up
