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

I just want to…


Ab          Eb
Watch the birds go by
        G7                         Cm
From my handy foldable blue canvas throne
        Ab          Eb
I wanna watch them fly and fly
    G7                       Cm     Eb7
And see them soar up into the unknown
But I’d…
 Ab                               Abm
 Feel just like a nerd, watching birds

Watching me here all alone


Eb
| / / / / | / / / / |


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

I just want to…


Ab          Eb
Watch the birds up there
          G7                           Cm
Track the migratory patterns that they’ve flown
        Ab          Eb
I wanna watch them from my chair
        G7                          Cm   Eb7
With my binoculars, my latte and my phone
Ab                            Abm
Trying to spot a lark in the park
                          Eb
Parked in nature all alone


Bb                                 Ab
Alone here with the doves and the sparrows and the ospreys
    Gm                     Ab
The owlets, the eagles and my list
          Bb                     Ab          
It’s just me and Mr. Finch, the robins, the kingfishers
    Fm                                 Bb
The snipes, though I heard they don’t exist
Ab
Each little species in its little way can teach me
     Gm                        F7
What awaits you if you can get away

I wanna…


Ab          Bb
Watch the birds do what they will
G7                           Cm
Sorry if I’m ornithologically prone
        Ab                                  Eb
I wanna watch from somewhere undisturbing, quiet, calm and still
G7                              Cm   Eb7
Sit right here and gaze at the unknown


Ab                    Abm                             Ab          
I don’t wanna fly in the sky, I just wanna be alone
               Eb
It’s not a big deal or anything
Ab          Abm              Eb
I just wanna be alone
