[Verse 1]

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

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
Em                A      Bm
I'm an Englishman in New York

[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              Bm
I'm an Englishman in New York

[Verse 2]

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]

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              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#/Bb                              Bm
At night a candle's brighter than the sun

[Instrumental]

Em  A  Bm  (4X)

[Verse 3]

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

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]

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              Bm
I'm an Englishman in New York
