Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Englishman In New York  Sting

[Em]   I don't drink [A]coffee I take [Bm/Bm]    tea my dear [Bm7/Bm7]
[Em]   I like my t[A]oast done on the[Bm/Bm] side   [Bm7/Bm7]

[Em]   And you can h[A]ear it in my acc[Bm/Bm]ent when I   ta[Bm7]lk

I'm an [Em]Englishman in [A]New  Y[Bm]ork
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

[Em]I'm an a[A]lien [Bm/Bm]  I'm a legal[Bm7/Bm7] alien

I'm an E[Em]nglishman [A] in New Y[Bm/Bm]ork
[Em]I'm an a[A]lien [Bm/Bm]  I'm a legal[Bm7] alien
I'm an E[Em]nglishman in New[Bm/Bm] 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
[D]Modesty, propriety can l[A]ead to not  or[A7]iety

[Bm/Bm]You could end[Bm7/Bm7]   up as the only [F] one

G[G]entleness, sobriety are r[A]are in this society
At [G]  night a candle's brighter than the[Bm/Bm]     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
