"Hey, Rita" as written by and Brian St. Clair David Scott Lucas....
Hey Rita, there's a statue with your face
Hey Rita, in a park bearing your name
I'd love to take you there
But no one really cares
And who's to blame?
Yeah, I've been patient
But patient is just another game
And if you never stay
It wouldn't matter anyway, it's ok

Hey Rita, there's a statue with your face

Spread the word around
The queen is stepping down
Living with your mom and dad again
The houseboats have been sold
The cars have all been towed
It hasn't been this bad since who knows when
Hey Rita, we want to know where you have been
You can't believe it, you want to know where we were then
And if you never stay
Wouldn't matter what they say, it's ok

Hey Rita, there's a statue with your face

And if you never stay
Wouldn't matter anyway
Wouldn't matter anyway, 'cause who's to blame?
And if you never stay
Wouldn't matter what they say
Wouldn't matter what they say
It wouldn't matter what they say

Hey Rita, there's a statue with your face

    General CommentHa! Until I read the lyrics, I always thought he was saying "I wanna stab you in your face," not "there's a statue of your face." If these lyrics are indeed correct, that totally changes my perception of the song's tone for the past nearly three years!

    General CommentAhhh I love this song. Local H rocks :)
    I always saw this song as being about a girl... obviously... but not so much as a girlfriend or wife, just a good friend, maybe seeing them after for the first time in a while and just kicking back and reminescing and paying tribute to a friend.

    Just my interpretation, I'm probably wrong.

    General CommentI think this is about someone famous in history, and some parts would be easier to understand if I knew who, but some famous Rita.
