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

I just want to…


Bb          F
Watch the birds go by
        A7                         Dm
From my handy foldable blue canvas throne
        Bb          F
I wanna watch them fly and fly
    A7                       Dm     F7
And see them soar up into the unknown
But I’d…
 Bb                               Bbm
 Feel just like a nerd, watching birds

Watching me here all alone

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

I just want to…


Bb          F
Watch the birds up there
          A7                           Dm
Track the migratory patterns that they’ve flown
        Bb          F
I wanna watch them from my chair
        A7                          Dm   F7
With my binoculars, my latte and my phone
Bb                            Bbm
Trying to spot a lark in the park
                          F
Parked in nature all alone


C                                 Bb
Alone here with the doves and the sparrows and the ospreys
    Am                     Bb
The owlets, the eagles and my list
          C                     Bb          
It’s just me and Mr. Finch, the robins, the kingfishers
    Gm                                 C
The snipes, though I heard they don’t exist
Bb
Each little species in its little way can teach me
     Am                        G7
What awaits you if you can get away

I wanna…


Bb          C
Watch the birds do what they will
A7                           Dm
Sorry if I’m ornithologically prone
        Bb                                  F
I wanna watch from somewhere undisturbing, quiet, calm and still
A7                              Dm   F7
Sit right here and gaze at the unknown


Bb                    Bbm                             Bb          
I don’t wanna fly in the sky, I just wanna be alone
               F
It’s not a big deal or anything
Bb          Bbm              F
I just wanna be alone
