Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!  The Beatles

From: Harlan L Thompson <harlant@uhunix.uhcc.Hawaii.Edu>
[Bb] [A7] [Dm] [G]  
For the be[Cm]nefit of Mr.[G] Kite
T[Bb]here will be a s[Dm]how tonight on tram[G]poline
The Hen[Cm]dersons will [G]all be there
L[Bb]ate of Pablo Fan[Dm]ques Fair- wh[A]at a scene!
Over [Dm]man and horses h[Dm/C]oops and garters
L[Bb]astly through a hogs[A7]head of real f[Dm]ire!
In this w[Bb]ay Mr. K[A]. will challenge the w[Dm]orld![Gm] [A7] [Dm] [G]
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
And of co[Bb]urse Henry The Ho[A]rse dances the w[Dm]altz![F+] [C] [A]
[Dm] [F+] [C] [B] [Em] [G]  
The band begins at ten to six
When Mr. K. performs his tricks without a sound
And Mr. H. will demonstrate
Ten summersets he'll undertake on solid ground
We've been some days in preparation
A splendid time is guaranteed for all
And tonight Mr. Kite is topping the bill!
[Dm] [A] [C] [Em] [A] [Dm] [A] [C] [Em] [B]  
[Em] [Em/G] [C] [B7] [Em] [C] [B] [Em]  
[Em/G] [C] [B] [Em] [Em/G] [C] [B] [Em]

A little ruff on layout. I'll stick to the sheet music.
