When I wake up yeah 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

And if I get drunk yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who gets drunk next to you
And if I haver well 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 will walk 500 more
To be the man who walked a 1000 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'll do
I'll pass almost every penny on to you

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

When I'm lonely yes 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

And if I get drunk yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who gets drunk next to you
And if I haver whatever the fuck that means
I'm gonna be the man who havers next to you

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


When I'm lonely yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who's lonely without you
I'm gonna be the man who's coming home...

And I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
To be the man who'd walk a 1000 miles
To fall down at your door

    General CommentThey didn't cover this song. They covered many grease songs, and others, but not this one. Besides, why post the lyrics under LTJ, they didn't write them
