Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite

Lennon/McCartney
Album: Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

BUY THIS CD AT AMAZON.COM

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 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 Bishopsgate 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.

Information

John came across a poster that advertised a circus which was made in 1843. The circus was a great show featuring Mr. Kite, Mr. Henderson and more. He was inspired to write a song based on this poster.
