The Lyrics

This is a tribute to Anime, which made us fans of it. But as the Japan Ministry prepares a new law called Youth Protection and Nurturing Ordinance which will mean the end to all anime and only a memory. My rhyming is a little rusty.
Times ago, but not so many times ago
Television was different, oh yes it was
We settled down and watched new cartoons and made it there
and we watched it grow, it was anime

Time goes by, time brings changes, anime change too
Nothing comes that anime can't handle so on it'll go
You never see it coming, when censorship caves in on you
on your TV, there's nothing we can do

Anime isn't anime anymore
Otaku don't shine as brightly as they done before
To tell the truth, otaku don't shine at all
in our anime

Pokemon comes up each morning, just like it's always done
get up, go to the set, and watch today
DVDs going out for business, Anime never gonna come
as live action roles by, a million inches away

Anime isn't anime anymore
No one seems to need them, like we did before
It's hard to find a channel just to stay
but it's anime, We love it anyway

Come what may, it's anime

DKTOS and not an anime fan, but I still could appreciate this parody. James Taylor should change his name to James Taylor Stingray! Anyway, well written and I liked it
