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

I just want to…


Db          Ab
Watch the birds go by
        C7                         Fm
From my handy foldable blue canvas throne
        Db          Ab
I wanna watch them fly and fly
    C7                       Fm     Ab7
And see them soar up into the unknown
But I’d…
 Db                               Dbm
 Feel just like a nerd, watching birds

Watching me here all alone

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

I just want to…


Db          Ab
Watch the birds up there
          C7                           Fm
Track the migratory patterns that they’ve flown
        Db          Ab
I wanna watch them from my chair
        C7                          Fm   Ab7
With my binoculars, my latte and my phone
Db                            Dbm
Trying to spot a lark in the park
                          Ab
Parked in nature all alone


Eb                                 Db
Alone here with the doves and the sparrows and the ospreys
    Cm                     Db
The owlets, the eagles and my list
          Eb                     Db          
It’s just me and Mr. Finch, the robins, the kingfishers
    Bbm                                 Eb
The snipes, though I heard they don’t exist
Db
Each little species in its little way can teach me
     Cm                        Bb7
What awaits you if you can get away

I wanna…


Db          Eb
Watch the birds do what they will
C7                           Fm
Sorry if I’m ornithologically prone
        Db                                  Ab
I wanna watch from somewhere undisturbing, quiet, calm and still
C7                              Fm   Ab7
Sit right here and gaze at the unknown


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