I don't drink coffee I drink beer my dear
I like my toast on leavened bread
You can hear it in my accent when I buy goods
I'm an Englishman in Al Quds

See me walking down Mendele St
With my laptop at my side
I need it so I can play MUDS
I'm an English Geek in Al Quds

I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
I'm an Englishman in Al Quds
I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
I'm an Englishman in Al Quds

If "Romans maketh roads" as someone said
They're still the baddies of the day
They gave us schools and shops and aqueducts
"What did they ever do for us?" I say

I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
I'm a Python man in Al Quds
I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
I'm an Python man in Al Quds

Immodesty, no propriety have lead to notoriety
Filking rhymes like soapy suds.
Gentleness, sobriety are rare in my society
At night the lights shine brighter in Al Quds

Takes more than combat gear in red of his
Takes more than license for bad puns
He's not a Messiah, a naughty boy he is
The latest Life of Bryan has begun

If "Romans maketh roads" as someone said
They're still the baddies of the day
They gave us schools and shops and aqueducts
"What did they ever do for us?" I say

I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
I'm an Englishman in Al Quds
I'm an alien I'm a legal alien
I'm an Englishman in Al Quds
