Eddie Izzard - 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-Fanques Fair
Have you seen it? It’s great. They got stuff.
Over men and horses hoops and garters
Lastly 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 don't be late.
Messrs. 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 ready, she’s got the stuff and movement and waltz. Horses how do they do that
stuff? You gotta give her sugar, you know, and shes called Henry and it’s a lot of explanation but don’t worry about it kids.
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. Its just , its such a collection. I spent
years putting it together. You gotta watch it. You gotta see it. It’s me. In the thing! Yeah!
