About this tab version
This is a beautiful song cover from the Ultimate Storytime Tour that was held in various cities on the East coast. Beloved viner Thomas Sanders is moving on from the former social network of Vine and entertaining the internet with Broadway quality performances. This song touches the hearts of many who hear it, for it is sweet, melodic, and melancholy. A capo on the 1st fret is recommended, but any octive is fine depending on the vocals. The parts of the duet are not defined, but the YouTube video may be consulted for such a performance. Fly, little birdies. Fly. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Verse]
D                           G
I don't wanna drive a fancy car today
              Bm        A N.C.  G9
I don't wanna ride in a red corvette
D                    G
I don't wanna jog my Saturday away
      Bm N.C.     A N.C.  G9
But I don't wanna go home yet
D                       G
Today is not the day to jump out of a plane
              Bm          A N.C.   G9
I don't wanna parasail or play roulette 
D                            G
I don't wanna risk it all or go insane
      Bm N.C.     A N.C.  G9 N.C.
But I don't wanna go home yet

[Chorus]
               G         D
I just want to watch the birds go by
        Gm6                        Bm    G6
From my handy foldable blue canvas throne
        G          D
I wanna watch them fly and fly
    Gm6                       Bm     G6
And see them soar up into the unknown
        G N.C.                          Gm N.C.                      D
But I'd feel just like a nerd, watching birds, watching me here all alone

[Verse]
D                            G
I don't wanna break dance or learn tai Kwon do
              Bm                A N.C.   G9
I don't wanna fish till all the fish are gone 
D                          G
I don't wanna roller skate even if it's slow
              Bm N.C.     A N.C. G9
I don't wanna pass out in a marathon
D                    G
I don't like soccer, baseball track or field
        Bm       A N.C.   G9
I'm not up for a match of polo
D                     G
I don't wanna seek or try to stay concealed 
         Bm N.C.   A N.C.    G9 N/C
I'm also not up for... water polo

[Chorus]
             G         D
I just wanna watch the birds up there
          Gm6                          Bm  G6
Track the migratory patterns that they flow
        G          D
I wanna watch them from my chair
        Gm6                         Bm   G6
With my binoculars, my latte and my phone
   G N.C.                    Gm N.C.                    D
Trying to spot a lark in the park parked in nature all alone

[Bridge]
A                                 G
Alone here with the doves and the sparrows and the ospreys
    Bm                     G
The owlets, the eagles and mynas
          A                     G
It's just me and Mr. Finch, the robins, the kingfishers
    Bm                                 A
The snipes, though I heard they don't exist
G                          D
Each little species in its little way can teach me
     D7                        G9
What awaits you if you can get away

[Chorus]
        G                  D
I wanna watch the birds do what they will
Gm6                           Bm   G6
Sorry if I'm ornithologically prone
        G                                  D
I wanna watch from somewhere undisturbing, quiet, calm and still
Gm6                              Bm   G6
Sit right here and gaze at the unknown 

[Finale]
G N.C.                                        A
I don't wanna fly in the sky, I just wanna be alone.
A
...
       N.C.     D N/C
I just wanna be alone
