Englishman In New York

Sting

 EmABm/BmBm7/Bm7
    I don't drink coffee I take     tea my dear  
 EmABm/BmBm7/Bm7
    I like my toast done on the side    

 EmABm/BmBm7
    And you can hear it in my accent when I   talk

 EmABm
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

 EmABm/BmBm7/Bm7
 I'm an alien   I'm a legal alien

 EmABm/Bm
I'm an Englishman  in New York

 EmABm/BmBm7
 I'm an alien   I'm a legal alien

 EmBm/Bm
I'm an Englishman in New York

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

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 not  oriety

 Bm/BmBm7/Bm7F
 You could end   up as the only  one

Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society

 GBm/Bm
At   night a candle's brighter than 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 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

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
