[Verse]
   C              G                B    Em   A#
I guess I always knew someday the day would come
C                                 Am             G
When a simple explanation simply wouldn't be enough.
C   A                 G#   
At this point I have 7 wigs, 52 games, 12 DVDs,
Em        Am 
9 manga 250 K-pop songs on MP3s.

Most of which you paid for so I guess I understand
         D                       Dm                G
Why you want an explanation I'll explain as best I can


[Chorus]
C        G        
Mother, Father, the reason I like anime
     D                                F         G           
The reason I know foreign words that only avid fans could say
     C             Em                D#m                 Am
The reason that I dress up weird and go to starange conventions
Dm                                Am
Is because I think it's fun, it's not just for attention


[Chorus]
C        G
Mother, Father, you don't quite get this cosplay thing
    D                                  F          G
Why people walk around the streets as Pokemon and Card Game Kings?
    C              Em              D#m            Am
Or how come in the U.S. we'd wear Japanese Steet Fashion
          Dm                              Am
Well it's like a costume party, and it's part of the attraction!


[Bridge]
     Em                           D#m           A
I'm sorry if I'm stuttering, but really how on Earth,
      Dm                Em                 Am               G
Do I explain this to my parents, who have sheltered me from birth?
         G       (slide G up and back down like in the video)
That I'm not watching cartoons!
         G     (slide G up and back down like in the video)
And this isn't just a phase!
          Dm                  Am
Yes it's weird, that's why I love it, 
       F                G
No, it won't affect my grades

       C              Am
Cause despite all my explaining 
       G              C
I can never make them see
C                 Em                  Am
They just wonder what they did wrong 
        G
raising me


[Chorus]
    C       G
Oh, Mother, Father, please let me join the maid cafe
   D                            F                G
I swear it isn't creepy though I see how it could sound that way...
    C            Em           D#m               Am
And I assure you Lolita's not what the book was written on!
   Dm 
Oh wait you didn't read the book...
   Am
I didn't either...
F      G
Moving on...


[Bridge]
     Em                           D#m           A
I'm sorry if I'm stuttering, but really how on Earth,
      Dm                Em                 Am               G
Do I explain this to my parents, who have sheltered me from birth?
         G       (slide G up and back down like in the video)
That I'm not watching cartoons!
         G     (slide G up and back down like in the video)
And this isn't just a phase!
          Dm                  Am
Yes it's weird, that's why I love it, 
       F                G
No, it won't affect my grades

       C              Am
Cause despite all my explaining 
       G              C
I can never make them see
C                 Em                  Am
They just wonder what they did wrong 
        G
raising me
     C                   Am
So I know you think I'm crazy
      G                   C 
I've explained as best I can
      C             Em                  Am 
And I hope that you accept me, for the person that I am
  C                 Em           Am 
A person who likes watching animation from Japan, who
 C              Em             Am 
sometimes turns into a raging, raving, squealing fan


[Chorus]
    C       G        
Oh, Mother, Father, you want to know what shipping is
        F
I would explain but I'm afraid
    F             G 
you won't respect me after this
     C              Em                D#m           Am
I'd tell you about fandoms, and their strange imaginations
        Dm         A                    F
How for most fans fanfiction is just a form of Mas-
    G
...creation?


[Bridge]
     Em                           D#m           A
I'm sorry if I'm stuttering, but really how on Earth,
      Dm                Em                 Am               G
Do I explain this to my parents, who have sheltered me from birth?
         G       (slide G up and back down like in the video)
That I'm not watching cartoons!
         G     (slide G up and back down like in the video)
And this isn't just a phase!
          Dm                  Am
Yes it's weird, that's why I love it, 
       F                G
No, it won't affect my grades

       C              Am
Cause despite all my explaining 
       G              C
I can never make them see
C                 Em                  Am
They just wonder what they did wrong 
        G
raising me


[Outro]
    C        G
Oh, Mother, Father, the reason I like anime
    D               F          G
Is something that I can't explain,
   Am
at all...
