I don't drink coffee I take tea, my dear
And you can hear it in my accent when I talk

A walking cane here at my side
I'm an Englishman in New York
Whoa, I'm an alien
I'm an Englishman in New York
I'm a legal alien

He's the hero of the day
Be yourself no matter what they say
Whoa. I'm an alien
I'm an Englishman in New York
I'm a legal alien

But you could end up as the only one
At night a candle's brighter than the sun
Takes more than combat gear to make a man
Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can

He's the hero of the day
Be yourself no matter what they say
Be yourself no matter what they say
Be yourself no matter what they say
Be yourself no matter what they say
Be yourself no matter what they say
