Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite!

Lead singer: John, 1967 Northern Songs


For the benefit of Mr. Kite

there will be a show tonight on trampoline

The Hendersons will all be there

late of Pablo Fanques'fair, what a scene

Over men and horses hoops and garters

and lastly through a hogshead of real fire

In this way Mr. K will challenge the world


The celebrated Mr. K

performs his feats on Saturday at Bishopsgate

The Hendersons will dance and sing

as Mr. Kite flies through the ring, don't be late

Messers 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
