The Lyrics

I don't know if this is a thing or not and if it isn't, my sincerest apologies, but let's pretend for a moment that no-one gives a shit about inkers of comic books. This is how an inker would feel if that sentiment turns out to be true.
Say you find a-a comi-ic to read and the-en
When you fi-ind it was made decently, not grea-eat
And you wri-ite blogs praising the writer, art too-oo
But I see-ee no wo-ords for the inker

All I do is outlines
That's my whole schtick
You don't care, do-o you?
You just like co-olours
I'm not too mad, buddy
I'm just a ta-ad peeved
As an inke-er dude
I'm no big dea-eal, true, oh

It's not li-ike I don't get paid well fo-or this, cause I do-o
It's just la-ame that my-y hard work ge-ets passed over, how ru-ude
Only ti-ime that inki-ing work gets noticed are bad ti-imes
"Inks are la-ame, too da-ark and thi-ick, they suck"

Worked hard on these outlines
So much black ink
Don't notice, do-o you?
Inside or co-overs
You care if it's sucky
You're shrugging mo-ostly
Give cred where cre-ed's due
You'd miss my pe-en, du-ude, oh

Ev'ry li-ine I've inscri-ibed, you ignored them and I ask why-y-y-y
As I fee-eel the wrist sprai-ain, brings me do-o-own a little bi-i-i-it
Wouldn't mi-i-i-ind if credi-i-i-it didn't go-o to arti-ists
Not depre-essed or anything, I'm OK

But I'd like my outlines
To get credit
And not just a-assumed
Part of the co-olours
They're not and that bugs me
They're sep'rate, you-ou see
Sometimes that i-is true
But not for me-e, dude

The part where inking is only brought up is when it sucks is based on my experience, though as "my experience" is reading forum responses to Transformers comics and watching Atop the Fourth Wall, that's why I put that disclaimer up the top in case this turns out to not be a thing.
