about

The reception room is inhabited by the 1940s screen goddess Rita Hayworth, and you are greeted by her as you begin the board game. 

Rita was horrified that her image was placed on the atom bomb used on Bikini Atol in1946. Roll the dice.

lyrics

Rita, she really knows
How to greet you
When time won't flow
She's got the right style
To put you at ease
She's got the right shade
Of colours to please

She's got the blue night hawk and the purple lagoon
The orange orchard and the silver moon
She only glows
Shines for miles
The perfect smile
It might mean nothing
But my, she dances
Ooh she knows how to greet you so

Rita, she's the cover girl
The first page of another world
She's got the black dress, that never fails
The hip shake and the 7 veils

She's got the blue night hawk and the purple lagoon
The orange orchard and the silver moon
She only glows
Shines for miles
The perfect smile
It might mean nothing
But my, she dances
Ooh she knows how to greet you so

Brunette to redhead
Moved on to strawberry blonde
Stolen by the army
Pinned on to an atom bomb
Rita likes to please
She dances a striptease
Once she was queen
Of the movie screen

Rita, she really knows
How to greet you
When time won't flow
She's got the right style
To put you at ease
She's got the right shade
Of colours to please

She's got the blue night hawk and the purple lagoon
The orange orchard and the silver moon
She only glows
Shines for miles
The perfect smile
It might mean nothing
But my, she dances
Ooh she knows how to greet you so
