About this tab version
This is from the Dodie and Thomas cover of birds. Dodie uses a baritone uke in this cover so that's what i'm writing this for, but if you want to use a normal uke or a piano or something else, transpose it up 7. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Verse 1]
G                            Cmaj7
I don't want to drive a fancy car today
               Em        D    Cmaj7
I don't wanna ride in a red corvette
G                      Cmaj7
I don't wanna jog my Saturday away
        Em        D        F
But I don't wanna go home yet

G                       Cmaj7
Today is not the day to jump out of a plane
               Em          D     Cmaj7
I don't wanna parasail or play roulette
G                         Cmaj7
I don't wanna risk it all or go insane
       Em         D        F
But I don't wanna go home yet


[Chorus]
             Cmaj7       G
I just wanna watch the birds go by
         Cm6                        Cmaj7
From my handy foldable blue canvas throne
                    G
I wanna watch them fly and fly
     Cm6                       C6       C7
And see them soar up into the unknown
        C
But I feel just like a nerd
           Cm
Watching birds
                       G
Watching me here all alone


[Verse 2]
G                         Cmaj7
I don't wanna break dance or learn taekwondo
              Em                 D       Cmaj7
I don't wanna fish till all the fish are gone
G                        Cmaj7
I don't wanna rollerskate even if it's slow
              Em           D    F
I don't wanna pass out in a marathon

G                     Cmaj7       
I don't like soccer, baseball, track or field
        Em          D     Cmaj7
I'm not up for a match of polo
G                       Cmaj7
I don't wanna seek or try to stay concealed
         Em     D     F
I'm also not up for waterpolo


[Chorus]
             Cmaj7       G
I just wanna watch the birds up there
             Cm6                      Cmaj7
Track the migratory patterns that they flow
                     G
I wanna watch them from my chair
          Cm6                         C6          C7
With my binoculars, my latte, and my phone
C
Trying to spot a lark
Cm
In the park
                       G
Parked in nature all alone


[Bridge]
D7
Lone here with the doves,
          Cmaj7
And the sparrows, and the ospreys
      Em                    Cmaj7
The owlets, the eagles, and mynas

          D7
It's just me and Mr. Finch
     Cmaj7                         D
The robin's, the king fishers, the snipes
                          D7
Though I heard they don't exist

C
Each little specie
                                        Em
And it's little way can teach me what awaits you
    F
If you can get away


[Chorus]
       Cmaj7
I wanna watch
     G
The birds do what they will
         Cm6                 Cmaj7
Sorry if I'm ornithologically prone
        Cmaj7
I wanna watch from somewhere undisturbing
G
Quiet, calm, and still
Cm6                             C6             C7
Sit right here and gaze at the unknown

C
I don't wanna fly
Cm
In the sky
                 C
I just wanna be alone

                G
It's not a big deal, or anything
C           Cm    G
I just wanna be alone


Enjoy!
