Cm           G+  
For the benefit of Mister Kite
B                     Dm                     G7
There will be a show tonight on trampoline
 Cm                    G+
The Hendersons will all be there
B                   Dm                 A7
Late of Pablo Fanque’s Fair, what a scene
Dm
Over men and horses hoops and garters
B                        A7                Dm
Lastly through a hogshead of real fire!
 B              A                             Dm
In this way Miser K. will challenge the world!

| Gm A7 | Dm | G7 |

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
B                          A                       Dm
And of course Henry the horse dances the waltz!

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
 B                 A                           Dm  B  Dm
And tonight Mister Kite is topping the bill.

The Hendersons will all be there

Over men and horses hoops and garters
Lastly through a hogshead of real fire!
In this way Miser K. will challenge the world!

The celebrated Mr. K.

The Hendersons will dance and sing
As Mr. Kite flies through the ring don’t be late

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 Mister Kite is topping the bill.
