Last updated: 03/31/2008 11:00:00 AM

Being For The Benefit of Mr. Kite
Lennon/McCartney


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
and lastly through a hogshead of real fire
In this way Mr. K will challenge the world

The celebrated Mr. K
performs his feats on Saturday at Bishopsgate
The Hendersons will dance and sing
as Mr. Kite flies through the ring, don't be late
Messers 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 somersets 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

Eddie Izzard as Mr. Kite | Reviewer: Daniel | 3/30/2008

Yes this is right for the song performed by The Beatles, Eddie Izzard played Mr. Kite in the Musical Movie Across the Universe. Eddie Izzard was encouraged to ad lib because he is hysterical and if you are going to have him do this you should let him go. Kind of like trying to get Robin Williams to not as lib, you can but it won't be anywhere as funny as when he does ad lib.



it is correct | Reviewer: jenessa | 12/5/2007

This was a song long before the movie. It was written and performed by The Beatles... just like every other song in the movie. All the crap that was added too it for the movie isn't in the real song so yes, these lyrics are correct.



is this right? | Reviewer: hannah | 10/21/2007

i really think that there are a lot more lyrics than this. I'd like to see everything that the man in the movie says. All his side notes and how he talks about prudence wanting to be called henrey... Why wasnt this included???
