[Intro]

Am7 D Em7 [x4]

[Verse]
Am7           D             Em7
I don't drink coffee I take tea my dear
Am7       D          Em7
I like my toast done on one side
Am7        D           Em7
And you can hear it in my accent when I talk
Am7           D             Em7
I'm an Englishman in New York
Am7    D            Em7
See me walking down Fifth Avenue
Am7       D         Em7
A walking cane here at my side
Am7     D           Em7
I take it everywhere I walk
 Am7               D       Em7
I'm an Englishman in New York

[Chorus]
Am7    D7     Em7
I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
Am7             D9       Em7
I'm an Englishman in New York
Am7    D7     Em7
I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
Am7             D9       Em7
I'm an Englishman in New York

[Instrumental]
Am7 D Em7 [x2]

[Verse]
Am7                D        Em7
If "Manners maketh man" as someone said
Am7           D      Em7
Then he's the hero of the day
Am7               D         Em7
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
Am7          D            Em7
Be yourself no matter what they say
Am7          D            Em7
Be yourself no matter what they say

[Chorus]
Am7    D7     Em7
I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
Am7             D9       Em7
I'm an Englishman in New York
Am7    D7     Em7
I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
Am7             D9       Em7
I'm an Englishman in New York

[Bridge]
G                      D               D7
Modesty, propriety can lead to notoriety
Em              Em7            B
You could end up as the only one
C                        D
Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society
  B7                                    Em7   
At night a candle's brighter than the sun

[Solo]
Am7 D Em7 [x4]

[Verse]
Am7        D                Em7
Takes more than combat gear to make a man
Am7        D           Em7
Takes more than a license for a gun
Am7           D             Em7
Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can
Am7              D           Em7
A gentleman will walk but never run
Am7          D             Em7
If "Manners maketh man" as someone said
Am7           D           Em7
Then he's the hero of the day
Am7        D             Em7
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
Am7          D                Em7
Be yourself no matter what they say
Am7            D              Em7
Be yourself no matter what they say
Am7            D                Em7
Be yourself no matter what they say

[Chorus]
Am7    D7     Em7
I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
Am7             D9       Em7
I'm an Englishman in New York
Am7    D7     Em7
I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
Am7             D9       Em7
I'm an Englishman in New York

[Outro]
Am7         D                   Em7
Be yourself no matter what they say
Am7         D                   Em7
Be yourself no matter what they say
Am7         D                   Em7
Be yourself no matter what they say
Am7         D                   Em7
Be yourself no matter what they say
Am7         D                   Em7
Be yourself no matter what they say
Am7         D                   Em7
Be yourself no matter what they say
Am7         D                   Em7
Be yourself no matter what they say
