This is the team of the residents of the world, those who have found a home away from home, thus the only rule is that you are not native to the country you reside in.

About this team

… that is, I am a legal alien. I am an Englishman living in New York.

But you neither have to be Englishman nor live in New York to join this team. This team is for all of us who find ourselves leaving away from home. It does not matter where you come from, if you have left your home and live currently abroad, this is your team.

The ‘I am an alien’ team is for all of us crafts enthusiasts and Etsy fans and offers artistic insight and promotional support. However it is above all a virtual community for people who need an online pal, to share their experience about their new home or need someone to talk to when being an alien truly feels like being one.

"Englishman In New York"

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

Written by Sting
Produced by Sting and Neil Dorfsman
From the album 'Nothing like the sun', released in 1988
