Englishman In New York

Text písně Englishman In New York

I don't drink coffee, I take tea my dear 
I like my toast done on one side 
You can hear it in my accent when I talk 
I'm an Englishman in New York 

See me walking down Fifth Avenue 
Walking cane here at my side 
I take it everywhere I walk 
I'm an Englishman in New York 

(chorus + lead) 
whoaa I'm an alien 
I'm a legal alien 
I'm an Englishman in New York 
whoaa I'm an alien 
I'm a legal alien 
I'm an Englishman in New York 

If "manners maketh man" as someone said 
He's a hero of the day 
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile 
Be yourself no matter what they say 

(Chorus + lead) 
whoaa I'm an alien 
I'm a legal alien 
I'm an Englishman in New York 
whoaa I'm an alien 
I'm a legal alien 
I'm an Englishman in New York 

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 

(musical piece) 

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 a hero of the day 
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile 
(Chorus+Lead) 
Be yourself no matter what they say 

(Lead) 
Be yourself no matter what they say 
Be yourself no matter what they say 

(Lead) 
Be yourself no matter what they say 
(9x) 

(Chorus, mixed through above Lead) 
Whoaa I'm an alien 
I'm a legal alien 
I'm an Englishman in New York 
(4x)
