Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite! Lyrics by The Beatles
Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite! by The Beatles
There will be a show tonight
The Hendersons will all be there.
Late of Pablo Fanques Fair; --late of, as in "formerly"
What a scene.
Over men and horses, hoops and garters, -- not garders
Lastly, through a hogshead of real fire; -- hogshead is one word, it's a type of barrel
In this way Mr. K will challenge the world.
The celebrated Mr. K
Performs his feat on Saturday
At Bishopsgate. -- again, one word, placename
The Hendersons will dance and sing
As Mr. Kite flies through the ring.
Don't be late!
Messrs. K and H assure the public -- messrs, anachronistic abbrevition
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 -- it's spelt like this, old word for somersault
On solid ground.
having been some days in preparation, -- not "they've"
A splendid time is guaranteed for all
And tonight Mr. Kite is topping the bill.
