I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)

The Proclaimers

When I wake up
Well, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you
When I go out
Yeah, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who goes along with you

If I get drunk
Well, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who gets drunk next to you
And if I haver
Yeah, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's haverin' to you

But I would walk five hundred miles
And I would walk five hundred more
Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles
To fall down at your door

When I'm workin'
Yes, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's workin' hard for you
And when the money
Comes in for the work I do
I'll pass almost every penny on to you

When I come home (when I come home)
Oh, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who comes back home to you
And if I grow old
Well, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's growin' old with you

But I would walk five hundred miles
And I would walk five hundred more
Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles
To fall down at your door

Da-da-da-da (da-da-da-da)
Da-da-da-da (da-da-da-da)
Da-da-dum-diddy-dum-diddy-dum-diddy-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da (da-da-da-da)
Da-da-da-da (da-da-da-da)
Da-da-dum-diddy-dum-diddy-dum-diddy-da-da-da

When I'm lonely
Well, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's lonely without you
And when I'm dreamin'
Well, I know I'm gonna dream
I'm gonna dream about the time when I'm with you

When I go out (when I go out)
Well, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who goes along with you
And when I come home (when I come home)
Yes, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who comes back home with you
I'm gonna be the man who's comin' home with you

But I would walk five hundred miles
And I would walk five hundred more
Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles
To fall down at your door

Da-da-da-da (da-da-da-da)
Da-da-da-da (da-da-da-da)
Da-da-dum-diddy-dum-diddy-dum-diddy-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da (da-da-da-da)
Da-da-da-da (da-da-da-da)
Da-da-dum-diddy-dum-diddy-dum-diddy-da-da-da

Da-da-da-da (da-da-da-da)
Da-da-da-da (da-da-da-da)
Da-da-dum-diddy-dum-diddy-dum-diddy-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da (da-da-da-da)
Da-da-da-da (da-da-da-da)
Da-da-dum-diddy-dum-diddy-dum-diddy-da-da-da

And I would walk five hundred miles
And I would walk five hundred more
Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles
To fall down at your door
