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

I just want to…


Gb          Db
Watch the birds go by
        F7                         Bbm
From my handy foldable blue canvas throne
        Gb          Db
I wanna watch them fly and fly
    F7                       Bbm     Db7
And see them soar up into the unknown
But I’d…
 Gb                               Gbm
 Feel just like a nerd, watching birds

Watching me here all alone


Db
| / / / / | / / / / |


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

I just want to…


Gb          Db
Watch the birds up there
          F7                           Bbm
Track the migratory patterns that they’ve flown
        Gb          Db
I wanna watch them from my chair
        F7                          Bbm   Db7
With my binoculars, my latte and my phone
Gb                            Gbm
Trying to spot a lark in the park
                          Db
Parked in nature all alone


Ab                                 Gb
Alone here with the doves and the sparrows and the ospreys
    Fm                     Gb
The owlets, the eagles and my list
          Ab                     Gb          
It’s just me and Mr. Finch, the robins, the kingfishers
    Ebm                                 Ab
The snipes, though I heard they don’t exist
Gb
Each little species in its little way can teach me
     Fm                        Eb7
What awaits you if you can get away

I wanna…


Gb          Ab
Watch the birds do what they will
F7                           Bbm
Sorry if I’m ornithologically prone
        Gb                                  Db
I wanna watch from somewhere undisturbing, quiet, calm and still
F7                              Bbm   Db7
Sit right here and gaze at the unknown


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