Sting - Englishman in New York

   cane      combat      enemies      everywhere      hero      matter      notoriety      society      someone      talk      tea   
I don't drink coffee I take my dear
I like my toast done on one side
And you can hear it in my accent when I
I'm an Englishman in New York

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

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

If, "Manners maketh man" as said
Then he's the of the day
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
Be yourself no 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

Modesty, propriety can lead to
You could end up as the only one
Gentleness, sobriety, so rare in this
At night a candle's brighter than the sun

Takes more than gear to make a man
Takes more than a license for a gun
Confront your , 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
I'm an Englishman in New York
