englishman in new york

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

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


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


Modesty, propriety can lead to notoriety
You could end up as the only one
Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society
At night a candle's brighter than the sun


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

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

I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
I'm an Englishman in New York

~~~as sung by "Sting"

Oh, my gosh - love the addition of Sting's lyrics.  And so appropo!  His frail hands make my heart sad...

You felt that huh? What's worse is, his friends put him out at a bus stop, and he didn't know where he was going. I got him on the right one, but he was a bit disoriented, so sad.
