A cool love song, especially if you are into marathon.

When I wake up, well I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the man who wakes up next 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 havering to 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

When I'm working, yes 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 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

Da da da (da da da)
Da da da (da da da)
Da da da dun diddle un diddle un diddle uh da

Da da da (da da da)
Da da da (da da da)
Da da da dun diddle un diddle un diddle uh 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

Da da da (da da da)
Da da da (da da da)
Da da da dun diddle un diddle un diddle uh da

Da da da (da da da)
Da da da (da da da)
Da da da dun diddle un diddle un diddle uh da

Da da da (da da da)
Da da da (da da da)
Da da da dun diddle un diddle un diddle uh da

Da da da (da da da)
Da da da (da da da)
Da da da dun diddle un diddle un diddle uh 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

I’M GONNA BE= I’m going to be.

GOES ALONG WITH YOU= Goes together with you.

IF I GET DRUNK= If I drink too much alcohol.

HAVER = What the hell is this? No idea, it’s not an English word, is it? Well, whatever this is, he’s going to do it with her too.

DA DA DA DUN DIDDLE UN DIDDLE UN DIDDLE UH DA= This is code language, it means that he is too drunk to sing properly and his tongue is too big now to pronounce good English, so he’s talking nonsense, “but I want to talk nonsense with you”, said he.

Easy, this guy says: I'm gonna be with you forever. But very close to you. Actually, I'll never be more than 1 metre away from you, so get used to it. Everything I'm gonna do in the future I'm gonna do with you, because you will always be less than 1 metre away, so get used to it. So when I go to work to earn all my pennies for you (pardon, most of my pennies for you) you will have to come with me too, because you can't be more than 1 metre away from me, so get used to it. What I'm really trying to say, obviously, is... will you be my secretary? Say yes, pleeeease, and get used to it.
