Being for the Benefit of Mr. Scheez

I haven't totally lost my mind. I also wanted to write something and had writer's block and then, it popped into my head.

For the benefit of Mr. Scheez
There will be a show tonight on trampoline
The Hendersons will all be there
Late of Pablo-Fanques is there, what a scene
Over men and horses hoops and garters
Lastly through a hogshead of real fire!
In this way Mr. Scheez. will challenge the world!

The celebrated Mr. S
Performs his feat on Saturday at Bishopsgate
The Hendersons will dance and sing
As Mr. Scheez flies through the ring don't be late
Mr. S assures the public
Their production will be second to none
And of course Henry The Horse dances the waltz-!

(Circus organ music)
The band begins at ten to six
When Mr. S. 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. Scheez is topping the bill.

(Circus organ music)
