    When the rain comes
    they run and hide their heads
    they might as well be dead...

    One of my favorites.

    Yep! It was a Circus poster that inspired Paul. But it wasn't an "OLD" poster at the time.

    If I remember correctly (which happens from time to time), he said the song was inspired by an old circus poster.

    Love it!

    I was born in the 60s and grew up listening to the Beatles. Their discography is in my genes.

    For a real treat, check out this cover of "Nowhere Man" by Low

    started a topic ... hogshead of real fire ...

    ... hogshead of real fire ...

    For the benefit of Mr. Kite
    there will be a show tonight on trampoline.
    The Hendersons will all be there
    late of Pablo Fanque's Faire - 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 Bishopsgate.
    The Hendersons will dance and sing
    as Mr. Kite flys through the ring - don't be late.
    Messrs. K and H assure the public
    thier 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 ...
