*Did you know?*

A band called the Proclaimers released a song in 1988 called ‘I’m going to be (500 miles)’ It was about a man who is prepared to walk 1000 miles to be with someone he loves. 

Here are some lyrics 

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