[Verse]
 
Em                  A            Bm          Bm7
   I don't drink coffee, I take tea my dear
Em              A               Bm      Bm7
   I like my toast done on one side
Em              A               Bm           Bm7
   And you can hear it in my accent when I talk
       Em            A     Bm
I'm an Englishman in New  York
 
Em       A            Bm            Bm7
See me walking down Fifth Avenue
Em         A               Bm      Bm7
A walking cane here at my side
Em         A               Bm      Bm7
I take it everywhere I walk
Em                A       Bm      Bm7
I'm an Englishman in New York
 
 
[Chorus]
 
Em      A    Bm           Bm7
I'm an alien   I'm a legal alien
        Em        A        Bm
I'm an Englishman  in New York
Em      A    Bm           Bm7
I'm an alien   I'm a legal alien
        Em       A       Bm
I'm an Englishman in New York
 
 
[Verse]
 
Em                A                 Bm    Bm7
If, "Manners maketh man" as someone said
Em            A           Bm    Bm7
Then he's the hero of the day
Em                A             Bm      Bm7
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
       Em         A             Bm
Be yourself no matter what they say
 
 
[Chorus]
 
Em      A    Bm           Bm7
I'm an alien   I'm a legal alien
        Em        A        Bm
I'm an Englishman  in New York
Em      A    Bm           Bm7
I'm an alien   I'm a legal alien
        Em        A      Bm
I'm an Englishman in New York
 
 
[Bridge]
 
D                       A           A7
Modesty, propriety can lead to notoriety
Bm           Bm7               F#
You could end   up as the only  one
 G                        A
Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society
   F#7                                 Bm
At night a candle's brighter than the sun
 
 
[Verse]
 
Em                A                   Bm    Bm7
Takes more than combat gear to make a man
Em                A             Bm    Bm7
Takes more than a license for a gun
Em                A                Bm      Bm7
Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can
       Em         A             Bm
A gentleman will walk but never run
 
Em                A                 Bm    Bm7
If, "Manners maketh man" as someone said
Em            A           Bm    Bm7
Then he's the hero of the day
Em                A            Bm       Bm7
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
       Em         A             Bm
Be yourself no matter what they say
       Em         A             Bm
Be yourself no matter what they say
       Em         A             Bm
Be yourself no matter what they say
 
 
[Chorus]
 
Em      A    Bm           Bm7
I'm an alien   I'm a legal alien
        Em        A        Bm
I'm an Englishman  in New York
Em      A    Bm           Bm7
I'm an alien   I'm a legal alien
        Em        A      Bm
I'm an Englishman in New York
