Englishman In New York Lyrics

I dont 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
Im an Englishman In New York

See me walking down fifth avenue
A walking cane here at my side
I take it everywhere I walk
Im an Englishman In New York

I'm an alien Im a legal alien
I'm an Englishman In New York
I'm an alien Im a legal alien
I'm an Englishman In New York

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

I'm an alien Im a legal alien
I'm an Englishman In New York
I'm an alien Im 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 candles 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...

I'm an alien Im a legal alien
I'm an Englishman In New York
I'm an alien Im a legal alien
I'm an Englishman In New York
