Mr. Cellophane

https://youtu.be/JX5lYVqTxgI

If someone stood up in a crowd And raised their voice up way out loud And waved their arm and shook his leg You’d notice him

If someone in the movie show Yelled, “Fire”, in the second row This whole place is a powder keg You’d notice him

And even without clucking like a hen Everyone gets noticed, now and then Unless of course, that personage should be Invisible, inconsequential me

Cellophane, Mr. Cellophane shoulda been my name Mr. Cellophane ’cause you can look right through me Walk right by me and never know I’m there

I tell ya Cellophane, Mr. Cellophane shoulda been my name Mr. Cellophane ’cause you can look right through me Walk right by me and never know I’m there

Suppose you was a little cat Residin’ in a person’s flat Who fed you fish and scratched your ears? You’d notice him

Suppose you was a woman, wed And sleepin’ in a double bed Beside one man, for seven years You’d notice him

A human being’s made of more than air With all that bulk, you’re bound to see him there Unless that human bein’ next to you Is unimpressive, undistinguished you know who

Cellophane, Mr. Cellophane shoulda been my name Mr. Cellophane ’cause you can look right through me Walk right by me and never know I’m there

I tell ya Cellophane, Mr. Cellophane shoulda been my name Mr. Cellophane ’cause you can look right through me Walk right by me and never know I’m there Never even know I’m there

Hope I didn’t take up too much of your time
