Englishman in New York - Sting

 

Strophe) 

I don´t 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 

I´m an Endlishman in New York 

 

See me walking down Fifth Avenue

A walki9ng cane here at my side 

I take it everywhere I walk 

I´m an Englishman in New York 

 

Refrain) 

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 

 

 

 Strophe) 

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 thwy say 

 

Refrain) 

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 

 

Bridge) 

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 

 

Strophe) 

Takes more than combat gear to ma a man 

Takes more than a license for a gun

Comfront your enemies, avoid them when you can 

A gentleman will walk but never run 

 

 Strophe) 

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 thwy say 

Be yourself no matter what thwy say 

Be yourself no matter what thwy say 

 

 Refrain) 

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
