BEING FOR THE BENEFIT OF MR. KITE

For the benefit of Mr. Kite
Bb Dm G
There will be a show tonight on trampoline
Cm G
The Hendersons will all be there
Bb Dm A
Late of Pablo Fanques Fair what a scene
Dm Dm/C
Over man and horses hoops and garters
Bb A7 Dm
Lastly through a hogshead of real fire
Bb A Dm Gm A7 Dm G
In this way Mr. K. will challenge the world

The celebrated Mr. K.
performs his feat on Saturday at Bishopsgate
The Hendersons will dance and sing
As Mr. Kite flies through the ring don't be late
Messrs. K. and H. assure the public
Their production will be second to none
Bb A Dm C A
And of course Henry The Horse dances the waltz

Dm C B

Em G C B Em G C B

Em G

The band begins at ten to six
When Mr. K. performs his tricks without a sound
And Mr. H. will demonstrate
Ten summersets he'll undertake on solid ground
We've been some days in preparation
A splendid time is guaranteed for all
And tonight Mr. Kite is topping the bill
