(dialog) I'm the father, papa, dad dad. Did you hear me? no you did'nt hear me. That's the story of my life, nobody notice I'm around, nobody Not even my parents noticed me. One day I went to school, and when I came home, they moved!Amos. If someone stood up in a crowd And raised his voice up way out loud And waved his arm And shook his leg You'd notice him If someone in the movie show Yelled "fired 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 Mister cellophane Should have been my name Mister cellophane 'cause you can look right through me Walk right by me And never know I'm there! I tell ya Cellophane Mister cellophane Should have been my name Mister 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 himA human being's made of more that 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. . . Should have been my name Mister cellophane 'cause you can look right through me Walk right by me And never know I'm there I tell ya Cellophane Mister cellophane Should have been my name Mister cellophane 'cause you can look right through me Walk right by me And never know I'm there Never even know I'm there
