When I wake up, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next to you
If I go out, well, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who goes along with you
When I'm working, I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's working hard for you
When the money comes in for the work I'll do
I'll pass almost every penny on to you,
On to you

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

When I come home, well, 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

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

And when the money comes in for the work I'll do
I'll pass almost every penny on to you
When I come home, well, 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

And I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be the man who walked a 1000 miles
To fall down at your door

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

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