For the benefit of mr. kite
There will be a show tonight
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 hog's head of real fire;
In this way mr. k will challenge the world.
The celebrated mr. k
Performs his feat on saturday
At bishop's gate.
The hendersons will dance and sing
As mr. kite flies through the ring.
Don't be late!
Misters 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.
