Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner, (born October 2, 1951), universally known by his stage name Sting, is an Academy Award-nominated sixteen time Grammy-winning English musician from Wallsend in North Tyneside. Prior to starting his solo career, he was the principal songwriter, lead singer and bass guitar player of the rock band The Police.



Sting - Englishman In New York

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

Aυτός προτίμησε να μην πάρει παράσημο, αλλά να μετακομίσει στην Ιρλανδία για να γλυτώσει τους φόρους! Έχει βλέπεις 6 παιδιά να ταϊσει... :D

Αυτό σκεφτόμουν. Ότι έχασε το παράσημο. Αλλά, άμα είσαι πολύτεκνος, έχεις άλλες έγνοιες. :-)

Κακό του κεφαλιού σου. Σου 'χω πει να αποφεύγεις τα επικίνδυνα κοκτέιλ.

Βρε, καιρό έχουμε να τα πούμε. Σε πεθύμησα! Τα πίνω ξεχωριστά, όχι together, αλλά άμα λάχει, μπορεί να το κάνω κι αυτό. Μου έδωσες ιδέα!
