Englishman In New York

Lyrics

   I don't drink coffee I take tea my dear
   I like my toast done on one side
   And you can hear it in my accent when I talk
   I'm an Englishman in New York

   See me walking down Fifth Avenue
   A walking cane here at my side
   I take it everywhere I walk
   I'm an Englishman in New York

   I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
   I'm an Englishman in New York
   I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
   I'm an Englishman in New York

   If "Manners maketh man" as someone said
   Then he's the hero of the day
   It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
   Be yourself no matter what they say

   I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
   I'm an Englishman in New York
   I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
   I'm an Englishman in New York

   Modesty, propriety can lead to notoriety
   You could end up as the only one
   Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society
   At night a candle's brighter than the sun

   Takes more than combat gear to make a man
   Takes more than a license for a gun
   Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can
   A gentleman will walk but never run

   If "Manners maketh man" as someone said
   Then he's the hero of the day
   It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
   Be yourself no matter what they say
   Be yourself no matter what they say
   Be yourself no matter what they say
   Be yourself no matter what they say
   Be yourself no matter what they say...

   I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
   I'm an Englishman in New York
   I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
   I'm an Englishman in New York

   I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
   I'm an Englishman in New York
   I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
   I'm an Englishman in New York
