Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite!

The Beatles

For the benefit of Mr. Kite
There will be a show tonight
On trampoline

The Hendersons will all be there
Late of Pablo Fanque's Fair
What a scene

Over men and horses, hoops and garters
Lastly, through a hog's head of real fire
In this way Mr. K will challenge the world

The celebrated Mr. K
Performs his feat on Saturday
At Bishop's Gate

The Hendersons will dance and sing
As Mr. Kite flies through the ring
Don't be late!

Misters K and H assure the public
Their production will be second to none
And, of course, Henry the horse dances the waltz

The band begins at ten to six
When Mr. K performs his tricks
Without a sound

And Mr. H will demonstrate
Ten somersets he'll undertake
On solid ground

Having been some days in preparation
A splendid time is guaranteed for all
And tonight Mr. Kite is topping the bill
