Lyrics[edit | edit source]
For the benefit of Mr. Kite,
There will be a show tonight on trampolines.
The Hendersons will all be there
Late of Pablo Fanques fair. What a scene!
Over men and horses, Hoops and garters,
Lastly through a hogshead of real fire!
In this way, Mr. K. will challenge the world!
The celebrated Mr. K
Performs his feat on Saturday at Bishops Gate.
The Hendersons will dance and sing
As Mr. Kite flys through the ring. Don't be late.
Messrs. 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 summersets 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!
