Beatles - Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite


Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite Lyrics

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 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 flies 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 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!

for Frank: You are correct. I happen to have 1967 Northern Songs Ltd London WC1 England piano score on faded paperbook. Doesn't mean it's exactly what they sing on the album but it's what they printed

The Beatles are the best band that ever lived and anyone who disagrees doesnt understand the meaning. This song was created for the purpose of being confusing, andit is. So,shut up!This song is great!
