HEAVEN lyrics : "ENGLISHMAN IN NEW YORK"

I don't drink coffee I take tea my dear
I like my toast done on the 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


I'm an alien
I'm a legal alien

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


I'm an alien
I'm a legal alien

I'm an Englishman in New York

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 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
