[Verse]    
Em             A             Bm7       F#m7 
I don't drink coffee I take tea, my dear.
Em         A                 Bm7    F#m7
I like my toast done on one side.
Em           A            Bm7                F#m7
And you can hear it in my accent when I talk,
Em     A              Bm7     F#m7
I'm an Englishman in New York.   

[Verse]
Em          A                 Bm7     F#m7
You see me walking down Fifth Avenue,
Em        A                Bm7  F#m7
A walking cane here at my side.
Em        A             Bm7   
I take it everywhere I walk,
F#m7   Em         A      Bm7   F#m7
I'm an Englishman in New York.

[Chorus]
F#m7 Em7         A
Who - a. I'm an alien.
Bm7   
I'm a legal alien.
F#m7   Em         A      Bm7
I'm an Englishman in New York.
F#m7 Em         A        
Who - a. I'm an alien.
Bm7
I'm a legal alien.
F#m7   Em7        A      Bm7   F#m7
I'm an Englishman in New York.

[Verse]
Em                  A              Bm7   F#7
If "manners maketh man" as someone said,
Em        A           Bm7   F#m7
He's the hero of the day.
Em          A             Bm7             
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile.
F#m7    Em      A                Bm7  F#m7
Be yourself no matter what they say.

[Chorus]
F#m7 Em7         A
Whoa. I'm an alien.
Bm7
I'm a legal alien.
F#m7   Em         A      Bm7
I'm an Englishman in New York.
F#m7 Em7         A
Whoa. I'm an alien.
Bm7
I'm a legal alien.
F#m7   Em         A      Bm7
I'm an Englishman in New York.

[Bridge]
D                       A
Modesty, propriety can lead to notoriety,
     Bm7                         F#7      
But you could end up as the only one.
G                           A
Gentleness, sobriety are so rare in this society.
   C#dim                          Bm7     F#m7
At night a candle's brighter than the sun. 

[Verse]
Em               A              Bm7        F#m7
Takes more than combat gear to make a man.
Em                 A             Bm7   F#m7
Takes more than a license for a gun.
Em            A          Bm7                   F#m7
Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can.
   Em             A              Bm7         
A gentleman will walk but never run.

Em             A                    Bm7  F#m7
If "manners maketh man" as someone said,
Em        A           Bm7  F#m7
He's the hero of the day.
Em          A            Bm7 
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile.
F#m7    Em7     A                Bm7        
Be yourself no matter what they say.
F#m7    Em7     A                Bm7
Be yourself no matter what they say.
