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 walks 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 a man who walks a thousand miles

To fall down at your door

 

Ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta

Ta-da-da-dan-te-la-dan-te-la-dan-te-le-la-da-da

Ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta

Ta-da-da-dan-te-la-dan-te-la-dan-te-le-la-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 walks a thousand miles

To fall down at your door

 

Ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta

Ta-da-da-dan-te-la-dan-te-la-dan-te-le-la-da-da

Ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta

Ta-da-da-dan-te-la-dan-te-la-dan-te-le-la-da-da

 

Ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta

Ta-da-da-dan-te-la-dan-te-la-dan-te-le-la-da-da

Ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta, ta-da-da-ta

Ta-da-da-dan-te-la-dan-te-la-dan-te-le-la-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
