[Verse]

Em               A             Bm              Bm7    
   I don't drink coffee I take     tea my dear
Em            A               Bm      Bm7    
   I like my toast done on the side 
Em              A               Bm             Bm7                                
   And you can hear it in my accent when I   talk
       Em            A     Bm
I'm an Englishman in New  York 

Em       A            Bm            Bm7   
See me walking down Fifth Avenue
Em         A               Bm      Bm7  
A walking cane here at my side
Em         A               Bm      Bm7  
I take it everywhere I walk
Em                A       Bm      Bm7
I'm an Englishman in New York


[Chorus]

Em      A    Bm           Bm7     
I'm an alien   I'm a legal alien
        Em        A        Bm   
I'm an Englishman  in New York  
Em      A    Bm           Bm7
I'm an alien   I'm a legal alien
        Em       A       Bm   
I'm an Englishman in New York


[Verse]

Em                A                 Bm    Bm7
If, "Manners maketh man" as someone said
Em            A           Bm    Bm7
Then he's the hero of the day
Em                A             Bm      Bm7
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
       Em         A             Bm
Be yourself no matter what they say


[Chorus]

Em      A    Bm           Bm7     
I'm an alien   I'm a legal alien
        Em        A        Bm   
I'm an Englishman  in New York  
Em      A    Bm           Bm7
I'm an alien   I'm a legal alien
        Em        A      Bm   
I'm an Englishman in New York


[Bridge]

D                       A             A7 
Modesty, propriety can lead to not  oriety
Bm           Bm7               F#  
You could end   up as the only  one
 G                        A
Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society
   F#7                                 Bm   
At night a candle's brighter than the sun


[Verse]

Em                A                   Bm    Bm7
Takes more than combat gear to make a man
Em                A             Bm    Bm7
Takes more than a license for a gun
Em                A                Bm      Bm7
Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can
       Em         A             Bm
A gentleman will walk but never run

Em                A                 Bm    Bm7
If, "Manners maketh man" as someone said
Em            A           Bm    Bm7
Then he's the hero of the day
Em                A            Bm       Bm7
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
       Em         A             Bm
Be yourself no matter what they say
       Em         A             Bm
Be yourself no matter what they say
       Em         A             Bm
Be yourself no matter what they say


[Chorus]

Em      A    Bm           Bm7     
I'm an alien   I'm a legal alien
        Em        A        Bm   
I'm an Englishman  in New York  
Em      A    Bm           Bm7
I'm an alien   I'm a legal alien
        Em        A      Bm   
I'm an Englishman in New York

this is nice :) for those who want to play it - these chors are perfect you just need to play them on the 5th fret for A and 7th fret for Em, Bm and Bm7 that't the way it's played live anyway.cheers

the right chord of the part 'the only one' is F# instead of F.
