[Intro] Em A Bm9

Em               A           Bm9
 I don't drink coffee I take tea my dear
Em            A               Bm9
 I like my toast done on the side 
Em              A               Bm9                                
 And you can hear it in my accent when I talk

I'm an Englishman in New York

Em               A             Bm9
See me walking down Fifth Avenue
Em         A              Bm9
A walking cane here at my side
Em               A     Bm9
I take it everywhere I walk

If "manners maketh man" as someone said
Em               A             Bm9
Then he's the hero of the day
Em               A             Bm9
It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
       G        A               Bm

Modesty, propriety can lead to not oriety
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

[Instumental] Em A Bm9

Em               A             Bm9
Takes more than combat gear to make a man
Em               A             Bm9
Takes more than license for a gun
Em               A             Bm9
Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can
        G     A           Bm
A gentleman will walk but never run

Em               A             Bm9
If "manners maketh man" as someone said
Em               A             Bm9
Then he's the hero of the day
