When I wake up, (when I wake up),
Well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you, (Yeah I know)
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, (who?)
If I get drunk, (If I get drunk, ) well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who gets drunk next to you, (yeah) Yes!
And if I haver, (when I hav... What does haver mean, ) yeah I know I'm gonna be I'm gonna be the man who's havering to you, (It's on 'ere)

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles
To fall down at your door

When I'm working, (when I'm working, )
Yes I know I'm gonna be I'm gonna be the man who's working hard for you, (shake a ka)
And when the money, (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),
I know I'm gonna be I'm gonna be the man who comes back home to you
And when I grow old, (when I grow old, well I know I'm gonna be I'm gonna be the man who's growing old with you

(Now! )
But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles,
To fall down at your door

Da da lat da (Da da lat da)
Da da lat da (Da da lat da)
... etc. x2

(Lou - Ladies and Gentlemen, The Proclaimers)

When I'm lonely, well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's lonely without you
When I'm dreaming, 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, )
Yeah 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 coming home with you

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles
To fall down at your door

Da da lat da (Da da lat da)
Da da lat da (Da da lat da)
... Etc... x5

Da da lat da (Bobby Davro)
Da da lat da (Bobby Davro)
... Etc...

And I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked a thousand miles
To fall down at your door
