Englishman In New York
oleh: Sting



I don't drink coffee I take tea my dearI like my toast done on the sideAnd you can hear it in my accent when I talkI'm an Englishman in New York
See me walking down Fifth AvenueA walking cane here at my sideI take it everywhere I walkI'm an Englishman in New York
I'm an alien I'm a legal alienI'm an Englishman in New YorkI'm an alien I'm a legal alienI'm an Englishman in New York
If "manners maketh man" as someone saidThen he's the hero of the dayIt takes a man to suffer ignorance and smileBe yourself no matter what they say
I'm an alien I'm a legal alienI'm an Englishman in New YorkI'm an alien I'm a legal alienI'm an Englishman in New York
Modesty, propriety can lead to notorietyYou could end up as the only oneGentleness, sobriety are rare in this societyAt night a candle's brighter than the sun
Takes more than combat gear to make a manTakes more than license for a gunConfront your enemies, avoid them when you canA gentleman will walk but never run
If "manners maketh man" as someone saidThen he's the hero of the dayIt takes a man to suffer ignorance and smileBe yourself no matter what they say
I'm an alien I'm a legal alienI'm an Englishman in New YorkI'm an alien I'm a legal alienI'm an Englishman in New York
