The theme song for the Terry Fox video is a one-hit-wonder by the Proclaimers. Those two twin Scottish brothers were quite energetic nerdy looking punk rockers. I like them! Unfortunately, the lyrics may not be suitable for younger learners. Anyway, it is a fun song, so I would still post it here to share with all adult readers. BTW, the movie was great as well.

The Proclaimers

I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) Lyrics




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



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 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 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 yeah 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 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 whose lonely without you

When I'm dreaming yes I know I'm gonna dream

Dream about the time when I'm with you.



But I would walk 500 miles

And I would walk 500 more

Just to be the man who walked 1000 miles

To fall down at your door

 









The following is another song by the Proclaimers. The lyrics are not as "explicit" as the previous one. hahaha. The video was accompanied with two of my favourite comedy characters. I love Laurel & Hardy. They were as funny as the Three Stooges. (Hahaha) Enjoy it!


I'm on my way from misery to happiness today

I'm on my way from misery to happiness today

I'm on my way to what I want from this world

And years from now you'll make it to the next world

And everything that you receive up yonder

Is what you gave to me the day I wandered



I took a right, I took a right turning yesterday

I took a right, I took a right turning yesterday

I took the road that brought me to your home town

I took the bus to streets that I could walk down

I walked the streets to find the one I'd looked for

I climbed the stair that led me to your front door



And now that I don't want for anything

I'd have Al Jolson sing "I'm sitting on top of the world"



I'll do my best, I'll do my best to do the best I can

I'll do my best, I'll do my best to do the best I can

To keep my feet from jumping from the ground dear

To keep my heart from jumping through my mouth dear

To keep the past, the past and not the present

To try and learn when you teach me a lesson



And now that I don't want for anything

I'd have Al Jolson sing "I'm sitting on top of the world".
