[Verse 1]

Em               A          Bm           
I don't drink coffee I take tea my dear
Em            A               Bm      
I like my toast done on the 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              Bm   
I'm an Englishman in New York


[Verse 2]

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              Bm   
I'm an Englishman in New York


[Bridge]

D                       A              
Modesty, propriety can lead to not  oriety
Bm                             F#  
You could end up as the only one
 G                        A
Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society
  F#/Bb                               Bm   
At night a candle's brighter than the sun

[Instrumental]

Em   A   Bm  (4X)


[Verse 3]

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              Bm   
I'm an Englishman in New York

chords in the outdo section are wrong. Change the F for F# and the second G for F#/Bb, that would make it better. Also lacking the step down at the end of every verse from Bm-A-Em.

The F# chords sounds better than G at the beginning the second part of the bridge:
F#
at Night a candle's...
