I don’t drink coffee I take tea, my dear.
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and mile.
Be yourself no matter what they say.
Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society.
And you can hear it in my accent when I talk,
I’m an Englishman in New York.
Whoa. I’m an alien.
But you could end up as the only one.

Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can.

Be yourself no matter what they say.
Be yourself no matter what they say.
I’m an Englishman in New York.
Be yourself no matter what they say.
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and mile.
Takes more than a license for a gun.

I take it everywhere I walk,
I’m a legal alien.
I like my toast done on one side.
Whoa. I’m an alien.
A walking cane here at my side.
Be yourself no matter what they say.
I’m an Englishman in New York.
I’m an Englishman in New York.
I’m an Englishman in New York.

Be yourself no matter what they say.

I’m an alien. Whoa.
Be yourself no matter what they say.
I’m an Englishman in New York.
Modesty, propriety can lead to notoriety,
A gentleman will walk but never run.
I’m a legal alien.
I’m a legal alien.
I’m an alien. Whoa.

Be yourself no matter what they say.
If "manners maketh man" as someone said,
You see me walking down Fifth Avenue,
I’m a legal alien.
Be yourself no matter what they say.
Be yourself no matter what they say.
If "manners maketh man" as someone said,
At night a candle’s brighter than the sun.
He’s the hero of the day.
Takes more than combat gear to make a man.
He’s the hero of the day.
Be yourself no matter what they say.
