[Intro]

G|---3---2---3---|
C|--0-0-3-3-0-0--|
E|-0---2---0-----|
A|---------------|

   G                              B   Em    Bb
I guess I always knew someday the day would come
       C                         Am            G
when a simple explanation simply wouldn't be enough
    A                G7
At this point I have 7 wigs,
                    Em    
52 game, 12 DVDS, 9 manga, 
  Am
250 K-pop songs on mp3s
Am
Most of which you paid for
    
So I guess I understand
         D
Why you want an explanation
                Dm     G
I'll explain as best I can

[Verse 1]
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                Dm                Am 
The reason that I dress up weird and go to strange conventions
   Dm                   Am      
Is because I think it's fun!
     Dm            Am 
It's not just for attention

[Verse 2]
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
Or how come in the US
           Dm             Am
We'd wear Japanese Street Fashion?
           Dm              Am
Well, it's like a costumes party,
         Dm           Am
and it's part of the attraction!

[Chorus]
     G           Em
I'm sorry if I'm stuttering,
     Dm           A
but really how on earth?
     Dm                 Em 
Do I explain this to my parents,
        Am               G
who've sheltered me from birth?
             G       G#maj7 G
That I'm not watching cartoons!
          G         G#maj7 G
And this isn't just a phase!
         Dm                 Am
Yes it's weird, thats why I love it,
       F               G
No, it wont affect my grades!
       C              Am 
Cause despite all my explaining,
       G              C
I can never make them see!
Em               Dm                    Em
They just wonder what they did wrong,
        Dm 
raising me

[Verse 3]
   C       G 
Oh Mother, Father

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

[Chorus]
     G           Em
I'm sorry if I'm stuttering,
     Dm           A
but really how on earth?
     Dm                 Em 
Do I explain this to my parents,
        Am               G
who've sheltered me from birth?
             G       G#maj7 G
That I'm not watching cartoons!
          G         G#maj7 G
And this isn't just a phase!
         Dm                 Am
Yes it's weird, thats why I love it,
       F               G
No, it wont affect my grades!
       C              Am 
Cause despite all my explaining,
       G              C
I can never make them see!
Em               Dm                    Em
They just wonder what they did wrong,
        Dm 
raising me
     C                  Am
So I know you think I'm crazy,
      G                  C
I've explained as best I can
       Em           D
And I hope that you accept me
        Em            Dm
For the person that I am
  Am                             Dm            
A person who likes watching animation from Japan,
     Am                            Dm 
Who sometimes turns into a raging, raving, squealing fan!!

[Verse 4] 
   C       G
Oh Mother, Father

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

[Chorus]
     G           Em
I'm sorry if I'm stuttering,
     Dm           A
but really how on earth?
     Dm                 Em 
Do I explain this to my parents,
        Am               G
who've sheltered me from birth?
             G        G#maj7 G
That I'm not watching cartoons!
          G         G#maj7 G
And this isn't just a phase!
         Dm                 Am
Yes it's weird, thats why I love it,
       F               G
No, it wont affect my grades!
       C              Am 
Cause despite all my explaining,
       G              C
I can never make them see!
Em               Dm                    Em
They just wonder what they did wrong,
        Dm 
raising me

[Outro]
   C        G
Oh Mother, Father

The reason I like anime
   F                      G
is something that I can't explain
    C
at all
