[Verse 1]
Eb                          G#
I don't wanna drive a fancy car today
              Emaj7*    Gm     Gm*
I don't wanna ride in a red corvette
Eb                   G#
I don't wanna jug my Saturday away
      Emaj7*      Gm      Gm*
But I don't wanna go home yet

[Verse 2]
Eb                      G#
Today is not the day to jump out of a plane
              Emaj7*      Gm      Gm*
I don't wanna parasail or play roulette
Eb                        G#
I don't wanna risk it all or go insane
      Emaj7*      Gm      Gm*
But I don't wanna go home yet

              Gm*       Eb
I don't wanna watch the birds go by
        Gm                         G#
From my handy foldable blue canvas throne
        Gm*        Eb
I wanna watch them fly and fly
    Gm                          G#   A7
And see them soar up into the unknown
But I'd feel just like a nerd
Watching birds
Watching me here all alone

[Verse 3]
I don't wanna breakdance or learn taekwondo  
              Emaj7*            Gm       Gm*
I don't wanna fish till all the fish are gone
Eb                         G#
I don't wanna roller skate even if it's slow
              Emaj7*        Gm   Gm*
I don't wanna pass out in a marathon

[Verse 4]
Eb                   G#
I don't like soccer, baseball track or field
        Emaj7*   Gm       Gm*
I'm not up for a match of polo
Eb                    G#
I don't wanna seek or try to stay concealed 
             Emaj7*    Gm    Gm*
I'm also not up for... water polo

             Gm*       Eb
I just wanna watch the birds up there
          Gm                           G#
Track the migratory patterns that they flow
        Gm*        Eb
I wanna watch them from my chair
        Gm                          G#
With my binoculars, my latte and my phone
Amaj7*                       Gm*
Trying to spot a lark in the park parked in nature all alone

Bb                                G#                            Gm                     G#
Alone here with the doves and the sparrows and the ospreys, the owlets, the eagles and mynas
          Bb                   G#                           Ebadd9                           Bb
It's just me and mr finch, the robins, the kingfishers, the snipes, though I heard they don't exist
G#*                                                       Emaj*                     Gm
Each little species and it's little way can teach me what awaits you if you can get away
        Gm*       Eb
I wanna watch the birds do what they will
      Gm            Eb        G#
Sorry if I'm ornithologically prone
Gm*                                        Eb
I wanna watch from somewhere undisturbing, quiet calm still
Gm                             G#     A7
Sit right here and gaze at the unknown
Amaj7*                   Gm*                        Emaj*  Amaj7
I don't wanna fly in the sky, I just wanna be alone.
Gm*    Amaj7    Eb
I just wanna be alone

I agree, they sound nice. But not like they are in the song, yes, they're nice chords. But they're not like the chords in the song if you get what I mean. I play a concert and they don't sound too good.

Btw I think that the word "don't" in the chorus is supposed to be "just".
