A Proclaimers re write of “I would run 500 miles”   Leave a comment

When I wake up, well I know i’m gonna be,
I’m gonna be the man who does not wake up next you
When I go out, yeah I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who goes away from you
If I get drunk, well I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who pukes on you
And if I leaver up, Yeah I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s leaving you

But I would run 500 miles
And I would run 500 more
Just to be the man who runs a thousand miles
to get away from you

When I’m working, yes I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s not working hard for you
And when the money, comes in for the work I do
I’ll pass every penny to anyone but you
When I come home(When I come home), well I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who takes the home away from you
And if I grow-old,(When I grow-old) well I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who’s not growing old with you

but i would run 500 miles
and i would run 500 more
just to be the man who runs a thousand miles
to get away from you

When I’m lonely, well I know I’m gonna be
I’m NOT 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 beat you again
When I go out(When I go out), well I know I’m gonna be
I’m gonna be the man who does not go along with you
And when I come home(When I come home), yes I know I’m gonna be
I’m better not the man who comes back home with you
I’m better not the man who’s coming home with you

But I would run 500 miles
And I would run 500 more
Just to be the man who runs a thousand miles
to get awayfrom you
