♫ The Police/Sting - English Man in Newyork ♫








Intro: Bm   Bm7 


 Em            A             Bm         Bm7 
 I don't take coffee I take tea my dear
 Em          A                Bm   Bm7 
 I like my toast done on one side
 Em            A            Bm            Bm7 
 And you can hear it in my accent when I talk
          Em       A       Bm   Bm7 
 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



 Em        A   Bm           Bm7 
 I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
         Em         A      Em  Em7 
 I'm an englishman in New York
 Em      A     Bm           Bm7 
 I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
         Em         A       Bm   Bm7 
 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



 Refrain



 D                       A           A7 
 Modesty, propriety can lead to notoriety
 Bm            Bm7             F# 
 You could end up as the only one
 G                          A 
 Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society
      F#                                Bm 
 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



 Refrain
