do as locals do






sometimes you feel like nothing fits in - nothing makes sense- so your only hope- to get trough- is to do as locals do...


the title is inspired by a song-lyrics can be read here :below: below...


Englishman in New York

by Sting



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


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


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


I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien


I'm an Englishman in New York
