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


[Verse]
Em     A            Bm
See me walking down Fifth Avenue
Em        A               Bm
A walking cane here at my side
Em        A            Bm
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

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


[Chorus]

I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
       Em         A      Bm

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


[Bridge]
D                      A
Modesty, propriety can lead to not oriety
Bm                           F#
You could end up as the only one
G                        A
Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society
   F#                                 Bm
At night a candle's brighter than the sun


[Solo]
Em  A  Bm  Bm  4x


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


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


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