When I wake up...
Yea I know I'm going to be I'm going to be that man who wakes up next to you
When I go out...
Yea I know I'm going to be I'm going to be that man who goes along with you
If I get drunk...
Yea I know I'm going to be I'm going to be that man who gets drunk next you
And if I heaver
Yea I know I'm going to be I'm going to be that man who's heavering to you

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

When I'm walking...
I know I'm going to be that man who's walking hard for you
And the money...
Cause for the work I do I'll pass almost every penny onto you

When I come home...
Yea I know I'm going to be I'm going to be that man who comes back home to you
And if I go...
Yea I know I'm going to be I'm going to be that man who going over you

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be that man to walks a thousand miles to fall down at your door

(Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Undela Undela Undela la la la)
(Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Undela Undela Undela la la la)

When I'm lonely...
well I know I'm going to be I'm going to be that man who's lonely without you
And when I'm dreaming...
Well I know I'm going to Dream I'm going to dream about our time when I'm with you
When I go out...
Well I know I'm going to be I'm going to be that man who goes along with you
And when I come home...
I know I'm going to be I'm going to be that man who comes back home for you
I'm going to be that man who's coming home for you

But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be that man to walks a thousand to fall down at your door
(Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Undela Undela Undela la la la)
(Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Undela Undela Undela la la la)
(Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Undela Undela Undela la la la)
(Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Undela Undela Undela la la la)

And I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be that man to walks a thousand miles to fall down at your door

    In the second verse it's working, not walking, i.e. "working hard for you" (in a think Scottish accent working sounds a lot like walking).
    Also, in the second verse it's "When the money comes in for the work I do I'll pass almost every penny on to you".
