[Bm]    [Bm7]    
[Em]I don't drink [A]coffee I take [Bm]tea my dear [Bm7]    
[Em]I like my [A]toast done on the [Bm]side [Bm7]    
[Em]And you can [A]hear it in my [Bm]accent when I [Bm7]talk    
I'm an [Em]Englishman [A]in New [Bm]York [Bm7]    

[Em]See me [A]walking down [Bm]Fifth Avenue [Bm7]    
[Em]A walking [A]cane here at my [Bm]side [Bm7]    
[Em]I take it [A]everywhere I [Bm]walk [Bm7]    
I'm an [Em]Englishman [A]in New [Bm]York [Bm7]    

[Em]I'm an [A]alien, [Bm]I'm a legal [Bm7]alien    
I'm an [Em]Englishman [A]in New [Bm]York [Bm7]    
[Em]I'm an [A]alien, [Bm]I'm a legal [Bm7]alien    
I'm an [Em]Englishman [A]in New [Bm]York [Bm7]    

[Em]If "manners [A]make the man" as [Bm]someone said [Bm7]    
[Em]Then he's the [A]hero of the [Bm]day    [Bm7]    
[Em]It takes a man to [A]suffer [Bm]ignorance and [Bm7]smile    
Be [Em]yourself no [A]matter what they [Bm]say    [Bm7]    

[Em]I'm an [A]alien, [Bm]I'm a legal [Bm7]alien    
I'm an [Em]Englishman [A]in New [Bm]York [Bm7]    
[Em]I'm an [A]alien, [Bm]I'm a legal [Bm7]alien    
I'm an [Em]Englishman [A]in New [Bm]York [Bm7]    

[D]Modesty, propriety can [A]lead to no- [A7]-toriety
[Bm]You could end [Bm7]up as the only [F#]one   
[G]Gentleness, sobriety are [A]rare in this society
At [F#/Bb]night a candle's brighter that the [Bm]sun   

[Em]Takes more than [A]combat gear to [Bm]make a man [Bm7]    
[Em]Takes more than [A]license for a [Bm]gun    [Bm7]    
[Em]Confront your [A]enemies, [Bm]avoid them when you [Bm7]can    
A gentle- [Em]-man will [A]walk but never [Bm]run    [Bm7]    

[Em]If "manners [A]make the man" as [Bm]someone said [Bm7]    
[Em]Then he's the [A]hero of the [Bm]day    [Bm7]

Be [Em]yourself no [A]matter what they [Bm]say    [Bm7]

I don't drink coffee I take tea my dear
I like my toast done on the 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 make the 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 no- -toriety
You could end up as the only one
Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society
At night a candle's brighter that 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 gentle- -man will walk but never run

If "manners make the 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
