Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite
by Eddie Izzard

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
Have you seen it? It's great, they got stuff

Over men and horses hoops and garters
Blasting through a hogshead of real fire
In this way Mr. K. will challenge the world
With the blue people, they're great, they're just, chilled out

The celebrated Mr. K.
Performs his feat on Saturday at Bishopsgate
Nice neck of the woods
The Hendersons they're gonna dance and sing
As Mr. Kite flies through the ring oh don't be late
Mrs. K and H. assure the public their production is second to none, baby
And of course Henry The Horse gonna do the waltz

Oh you gotta see it, it's genius
I mean she's brilliant, she's got the stuff and movement and waltz
Horses how do they do that stuff?
You gotta give her sugar, you know, and she's called Henry and it's a lot of explanation
But don't worry about it kids, ok?
Just tune in, turn off, drop out, drop in, switch off, switch on, and explode

The band begins at ten to six
When Mr. K. performs his tricks
Without a sound
And Mr. H. will demonstrate
Ten somersets, he's gonna do on solid ground, whatever they are

Having been some days in preparation
A splendid time is guaranteed for all
And tonight Mr. Kite is topping the bill baby, across the universe
It's me, I'm on top of the bill
I spent years getting to this point
I'm bloody brilliant
This is golden, you gotta see what I do, man
I got horses, and dogs, and cats, and monekys, and blue people
It's just, it's such a collection
I spent years putting it together
You gotta watch it, you gotta see it
It's me!
In the thing
(Yeah)
