Lyrics

I don`t drink coffee I`ll take tea my dear I like my toast done on one side As 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 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 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
