The Proclaimers

I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)

Lyrics

playWhen I wake up, well, I know I'm gonna be
playI'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you
playWhen I go out, yeah, I know I'm gonna be
playI'm gonna be the man who goes along with you
playIf I get drunk, well, I know I'm gonna be
playI'm gonna be the man who gets drunk next to you
playAnd if I haver, hey, I know I'm gonna be
playI'm gonna be the man who's havering to you

playBut I would walk five hundred miles
playAnd I would walk five hundred more
playJust to be the man who walked a thousand miles
playTo fall down at your door

playWhen I'm working, yes, I know I'm gonna be
playI'm gonna be the man who's working hard for you
playAnd when the money comes in for the work I do
playI'll pass almost every penny on to you
playWhen I come home (When I come home),
playoh, I know I'm gonna be
playI'm gonna be the man who comes back home to you
playAnd if I grow old, well, I know I'm gonna be
playI'm gonna be the man who's growing old with you

playBut I would walk five hundred miles
playAnd I would walk five hundred more
playJust to be the man who walked a thousand miles
playTo fall down at your door

playDa lat da (Da lat da), da lat da (Da lat da)
playDa-da-da dun-diddle un-diddle un-diddle uh da-da
playDa lat da (Da lat da), da lat da (Da lat da)
playDa-da-da dun-diddle un-diddle un-diddle uh da-da

playWhen I'm lonely, well, I know I'm gonna be
playI'm gonna be the man who's lonely without you
playAnd when I'm dreaming,
playwell, I know I'm gonna dream
playI'm gonna dream about the time when I'm with you
playWhen I go out (When I go out),
playwell, I know I'm gonna be
playI'm gonna be the man who goes along with you
playAnd when I come home (When I come home),
playyes, I know I'm gonna be
playI'm gonna be the man who comes back home with you
playI'm gonna be the man who's coming home with you

playBut I would walk five hundred miles
playAnd I would walk five hundred more
playJust to be the man who walked a thousand miles
playTo fall down at your door

playDa lat da (Da lat da), da lat da (Da lat da)
playDa-da-da dun-diddle un-diddle un-diddle uh da-da
playDa lat da (Da lat da), da lat da (Da lat da)
playDa-da-da dun-diddle un-diddle un-diddle uh da-da
playDa lat da (Da lat da), da lat da (Da lat da)
playDa-da-da dun-diddle un-diddle un-diddle uh da-da
playDa lat da (Da lat da), da lat da (Da lat da)
playDa-da-da dun-diddle un-diddle un-diddle uh da-da

playAnd I would walk five hundred miles
playAnd I would walk five hundred more
playJust to be the man who walked a thousand miles
playTo fall down at your door
