Englishman In New York

Lyrics

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

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

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

playIf "Manners maketh man" as someone said
playThen he's the hero of the day
playIt takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
playBe yourself no matter what they say

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

playModesty, propriety can lead to notoriety
playYou could end up as the only one
playGentleness, sobriety are rare in this society
playAt night a candle's brighter than the sun

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

playIf "Manners maketh man" as someone said
playThen he's the hero of the day
playIt takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
playBe yourself no matter what they say
playBe yourself no matter what they say
playBe yourself no matter what they say
playBe yourself no matter what they say
playBe yourself no matter what they say...

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

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