‘Twas the golden years of movie stars—the 1940s and 50s
In every city, town, nook, and cranny
Somebody knew their name.
They lived in health, wealth, and luxury
Lived life to the fullest, for all to see.
Among the finest, was Rita Hayworth,
Rich in money, luck, and birth.
Birth gave her beauty
Luck gave her fame
Fans gave her money
She was best at her game.
Soldiers decoupaged her picture
On the side of the atom bomb
On marques she was a fixture
She was excitement, never calm.
She was Hollywood princess for many years,
But in the end after sorrow and tears
The curtain came down,
‘twas the end of the show.
