I don’t drink coffee I take tea my dear
I like my toast done on one 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 a 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

    I so enjoy your artistry. There is a a fancifull and happy mood to each piece. Your use of textures and patterns is amazingly complicated yet at first glance, there is always an elegant simplicity. I know, contradictory oberservations but I wanted to give you my impressions. Wonderful work!

  • Hi Carolyn!!! thank you so much for the fantastic comment! It makes me very happy to see when someone likes my work enough to take a deeper look! XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX!

  • Thank you sweetheart!!! There really isn;t alot to tell, I create the baseshapes in Incendia and than I do alot of afterwork in PSP. With all my work most time is invested in after the fractal is rendered!
