The Lyrics

When I was just a lad,
Looking for my true vocation,
My father said "Now, son, this choice
Deserves deliberation"

"Though you could be a doctor
Or perhaps a financier,
My boy, why not consider
A more challenging career?"

Hey-ho-ho, your fame will come in scores
You'll meet lots of great people at premieres way out of doors,
Creativeness and humor are what we can't live without,
And when you're a cartoonist for movies,
That's what the job's about.

Now, take Mr. Walt Disney
The critics all despise him
But to cartoonists, he's a hero
And they idolize him,
It's how you look at cartoon-eers
That makes them bad or good
And I see us as members of
A noble brotherhood!

Hey-ho-ho, we draw fictitious men
And before we publish comics, we count panels, must be ten.
On occasion there may be some things you may have to refute
But when you're a cartoonist for movies
You don't have to harvest fruit.

(Richard Williams)
I could have been a painter
I like making freaky art

(Charles Addams)
I could have driven race-cars
But my engines wouldn't start

(Walt Disney)
I could have gone to the Army
But I'm not much a defender

(Chuck Jones)
And me...I could have been
...A bartender.

Some say our works ain't real
And should be loathed and hated
I say they're victims of bad press,
It's all exaggerated

We'd never do 'toons back to back
We'd never skip a beat
We're just about the funnest guys
You'd ever want to meet!

(spoken)
Tell the truth, lad. Do you really think the colleges and universities are willing to give diplomas to the likes of us? And we being the soul of art...who BELT OUT INK working out here. Join us, lad. Donate your skills to the film work and get a full share!

Hey-ho-ho, in drawing, you'll have fun
And you'll make your steps to finding your shining place in the sun
We're gentlemen of fiction and that's what we're proud to be
And when you're a cartoonist for movies
You'll think smart and logically
There's no simplicity
You'll be wiser to bear
Your success you'll share
And most importantly
When you're a cartoonist for movies
You're always in the best of company!
