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, hey I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's havering to you

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

When I'm working, yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's working 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 growing old 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

Fa la la da (fa la la da)
Fa la la da (fa la la da)
Da da da dun diddle dun diddle dun diddle da da da


Fa la la da (fa la la da)
Fa la la da (fa la la da)
Da da da dun diddle dun diddle dun diddle 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 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), 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 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

Fa la la da (fa la la da)
Fa la la da (fa la la da)
Da da da dun diddle dun diddle dun diddle da da da

Fa la la da (fa la la da)
Fa la la da (fa la la da)
Da da da dun diddle dun diddle dun diddle da da da

Fa la la da (fa la la da)
Fa la la da (fa la la da)

Da da da dun diddle dun diddle dun diddle da da da

Fa la la da (fa la la da)
Fa la la da (fa la la da)
Da da da dun diddle dun diddle dun diddle da da da

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
