Shirley Bassey – Englishman in New York

Letra “Shirley Bassey – Englishman in New York” Official Lyrics

[Verse 1]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

[Verse 2]You 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

[Chorus]Whoa, I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien
I’m an Englishman in New York
Whoa, I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien
I’m an Englishman in New York

[Verse 3]If “manners maketh man” as someone said
He’s the hero of the day
It takes a man to suffer ignorancе and smile
Be yourself, no mattеr what they say

[Chorus]Whoa, I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien
I’m an Englishman in New York
Whoa, I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien
I’m an Englishman in New York

[Bridge]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

[Saxophone Solo]

[Verse 4]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

[Chorus]Whoa, I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien
I’m an Englishman in New York
Whoa, I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien
I’m an Englishman in New York

[Outro]Whoa, I’m an alien, I’m a legal alien
I’m an Englishman in New York
I’m an Englishman in New York
I’m an Englishman in New York
