D                                G          
     I don’t wanna drive a fancy car today
              Bm        A          Em
I don’t wanna ride in a red cor -vette
D                         G          
     I don’t wanna jog my Saturday away
      Bm          A          Em
But I don’t wanna go home   yet
D                            G          
     Today is not the day to jump out of a plane
              Bm          A          Em
I don’t wanna parasail or play rou - lette
D                                 G          
     I don’t wanna risk it all or go insane
      Bm          A          Em    -nc-
But I don't wanna go home    yet

I just want to…


G          D
Watch the birds go by
        Gb7                         Bm
From my handy foldable blue canvas throne
        G          D
I wanna watch them fly and fly
    Gb7                       Bm     D7
And see them soar up into the unknown
But I’d…
 G                               Gm
 Feel just like a nerd, watching birds

Watching me here all alone

D                                 G          
     I don’t wanna break dance or learn tai Kwon do
              Bm                A          Em
I don’t wanna fish ‘til all the fish are gone
D                               G          
     I don’t wanna roller skate even if it’s slow
              Bm            A          C
I don’t wanna pass out in a mara -thon
D                         G          
     I don’t like soccer, baseball, track or field
        Bm       A          Em
I’m not up for a match of polo
D                          G          
     I don’t wanna seek or try to stay concealed
         Bm        A          Em   -nc-
I'm also not up for water polo

I just want to…


G          D
Watch the birds up there
          Gb7                           Bm
Track the migratory patterns that they’ve flown
        G          D
I wanna watch them from my chair
        Gb7                          Bm   D7
With my binoculars, my latte and my phone
G                            Gm
Trying to spot a lark in the park
                          D
Parked in nature all alone


A                                 G
Alone here with the doves and the sparrows and the ospreys
    Gbm                     G
The owlets, the eagles and my list
          A                     G          
It’s just me and Mr. Finch, the robins, the kingfishers
    Em                                 A
The snipes, though I heard they don’t exist
G
Each little species in its little way can teach me
     Gbm                        E7
What awaits you if you can get away

I wanna…


G          A
Watch the birds do what they will
Gb7                           Bm
Sorry if I’m ornithologically prone
        G                                  D
I wanna watch from somewhere undisturbing, quiet, calm and still
Gb7                              Bm   D7
Sit right here and gaze at the unknown


G                    Gm                             G          
I don’t wanna fly in the sky, I just wanna be alone
               D
It’s not a big deal or anything
G          Gm              D
I just wanna be alone
