[Verse]
Em                        A                Bm
        I don't drink coffee I take tea my dear 
Em                  A                         Bm
        I like my toast done on one side 
Em                       A                  Bm
        And you can hear it in my accent when I talk 
                  Em              A           Bm
        I'm an Englishman in New York 


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


[Chorus]
Em              A      Bm
        I'm an alien I'm a legal alien 
                  Em              A         Bm
        I'm an Englishman in New York 
Em              A     Bm
        I'm an alien I'm a legal alien 
                  Em              A        Bm
        I'm an Englishman in New York 


[Verse]
Em                        A                       Bm
        If, "Manners maketh man" as someone said 
Em                         A              Bm
        Then he's the hero of the day 
Em                     A                 Bm
        It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile 
                   Em         A                       Bm
        Be yourself no matter what they say 


[Chorus]
Em              A     Bm
        I'm an alien I'm a legal alien 
                  Em              A        Bm
        I'm an Englishman in New York 
Em              A      Bm
        I'm an alien I'm a legal alien 
                   Em             A        Bm
        I'm an Englishman in New York 


[Bridge]
        D                                  A 
        Modesty, propriety can lead to notoriety 
         Bm                                        F#m
        You could end up as the only one 
        G                                    A
        Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society 
         A7                                                  Bm
        At night a candle's brighter than the sun 

[Verse]

Em                              A                      Bm
        Takes more than combat gear to make a man 
Em                                 A                Bm
        Takes more than a license for a gun 
Em                          A            Bm
        Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can 
           Em                   A                    Bm
        A gentleman will walk but never run 


Em                        A                      Bm
        If, "Manners maketh man" as someone said 
Em                          A              Bm
        Then he's the hero of the day 
Em                   A                   Bm
        It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile 
                   Em        A                      Bm
        Be yourself no matter what they say 


[Chorus]
Em              A     Bm
        I'm an alien I'm a legal alien 
                  Em               A        Bm
        I'm an Englishman in New York 
Em              A     Bm
        I'm an alien I'm a legal alien 
                  Em              A         Bm
        I'm an Englishman in New York

good but you missed a few B minors in there. Especially in the chorus

Try F# major in the bridge rather than F#minor. Sounds better.
