extension lyric words

Hi friends,
I ask you how you can get a good result for the extension of the words in the lyric, if this is possible. I tried to add the underscore (underline) in the text entry box (X), but its position is always either too high or too low, or off-center. There is no automatic way to do this?
I am attaching a small example
Thank you.

Trying to get an answer for Lorenzo I made some experiments with "Underscores shown as spaces".
It's a thing I didn't touch since a long time.
...and I found no difference with that option checked and unchecked!
Am I overlooking something?

It works OK for me.

Entering a single underscore with a space on either side of it will show as an underscore when this box is checked and will be a blank space against the relevant note if the box is unchecked.

Got it.
The underscore is very slim and (do you remember Murphy?) exactly on the limit of the staff highlight...
