Mr. Cellophane

I had plans tonight, plans on a Saturday night, plans out with a boy, a boy I've liked for quite some time, but then, after getting all beautiful and looking fine, he called me to say he'd rather go with someone else. Stood up again, the list numbers one more... don't know what I'm doing wrong... so I made myself a splendid dinner and stuck in a movie - the best of my situation - and ate some of my sweet chocolate cake. I'd rather have the cake than the boy anyhow.

Chicago: Mr. Cellophane (abridged)
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 "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
Mister Cellophane
Shoulda 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...

Hope I didn't take up too much of your time.
