C6/9     Dm7             G7                Cmaj7       C6/9 
A Rita levou meu sorriso   No sorriso dela meu assunto
                Gm6                         Gdim                Fmaj7 
Levou junto com ela E o que me é de direito      Arrancou-me do peito E tem mais
            Fm6                         Bb7/9       Em 
Levou seu retrato, seu trapo, seu prato       Que papel!
     A7/-9            Dm9                          Bbm6 
Uma imagem de Sao Francisco E um bom disco de Noel
         Dm7                  G7          Cmaj7        C6/9 
A Rita matou nosso amor De vingança Nem herança deixou
                Gm6                      Gdim                     Fmaj7 
Nao levou um tostao Porque nao tinha nao      Mas causou perdas e danos
              Fm6                        Bb7/9               Em 
Levou os meus planos Meus pobres enganos       Os meus vinte anos 
          A7/-9         Dm9            G7/6       C6/9 G#m6 C6/9 
O meu coraçao E além de tudo Me deixou mudo Um violao
