Lyrics Sting - Englishman / African in New York

I'm gonna make it
I'm gonna get it
I'm gonna make it ooh
I'm gonna get it
I'm gonna make it
I'm gonna make it ooh

I don't drink coffee, I take tea, my dear
I like my toast done on one side
But you can hear it in my accent when I talk
I'm an Englishman in New York

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

Whoa oh, I'm an alien
I'm a legal alien
I'm an Englishman in New York
Whoa oh, I'm an alien
I'm a legal alien
I'm an Englishman in New York

Every day I wake up here's a win
'Cause I got here on a dream
I still hear my mother praying everyday
I'm an African in New York

You dey see am for my pride and energy
When I dey waka down the street
You can hear it in my accent when I talk
I'm an African in New York

Ooh oh, I'm an alien
I'm a legal alien
I'm an African in New York
Whoa oh, I'm an alien
I'm a legal alien
I'm an Englishman in New York
Ooh oh, I'm an alien
I'm a legal alien
I'm an African in New York
Whoa oh, I'm an alien
I'm a legal alien
I'm an Englishman in New York

I'm gonna make it
I'm gonna get it
I'm gonna make it ooh
I'm gonna get it (Be yourself, no matter what they say)
I'm gonna make it (Be yourself, no matter what they say)
I'm gonna make it ooh
(Be yourself, no matter what they say)
