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

The celebrated Mr. K. 
Performs his feat on Saturday at Bishops Gate 
The Hendersons will dance and sing 
As Mr. Kite fly's through the ring don't be late 
Messrs. 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 summer sets 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
