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
