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

I just want to…


Eb          Bb
Watch the birds go by
        D7                         Gm
From my handy foldable blue canvas throne
        Eb          Bb
I wanna watch them fly and fly
    D7                       Gm     Bb7
And see them soar up into the unknown
But I’d…
 Eb                               Ebm
 Feel just like a nerd, watching birds

Watching me here all alone


Bb

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

I just want to…


Eb          Bb
Watch the birds up there
          D7                           Gm
Track the migratory patterns that they’ve flown
        Eb          Bb
I wanna watch them from my chair
        D7                          Gm   Bb7
With my binoculars, my latte and my phone
Eb                            Ebm
Trying to spot a lark in the park
                          Bb
Parked in nature all alone


F                                 Eb
Alone here with the doves and the sparrows and the ospreys
    Dm                     Eb
The owlets, the eagles and my list
          F                     Eb          
It’s just me and Mr. Finch, the robins, the kingfishers
    Cm                                 F
The snipes, though I heard they don’t exist
Eb
Each little species in its little way can teach me
     Dm                        C7
What awaits you if you can get away

I wanna…


Eb          F
Watch the birds do what they will
D7                           Gm
Sorry if I’m ornithologically prone
        Eb                                  Bb
I wanna watch from somewhere undisturbing, quiet, calm and still
D7                              Gm   Bb7
Sit right here and gaze at the unknown


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