From the episode: You May Now Kiss the...Uh...Guy Who Receives
Singers: Peter Griffin, The Proclaimers
Voices: Seth MacFarlane, The Proclaimers

"I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" is a song written and performed by Scottish pop band The Proclaimers. It was released on their 1988 Sunshine on Leith album, and subsequently as a single. It has become one of their most popular songs, reaching No. 11 in the UK charts and No. 1 on the Australian ARIA Charts in 1989, plus, five years later, No. 3 in the US Billboard Hot 100. The song has become a live staple at their concerts.

Peter Griffin tried singing it with them once in the recording studio, but it didn't really work out, as seen in a cutaway in "You May Now Kiss the...Uh...Guy Who Receives".


Proclaimers: But I would walk 500 miles

And I would walk 500 more

Just to be the man who walked 1,000 miles

And fall down at your door

Na, na, na, na

Peter: Da, da, da, da

Proclaimers: Na, na, na, na

Peter: Da, da, da, da

All: Na, na, na

[Peter starts slapping one of the singers' guitars, and then pushes him down]

Peter: Yeah. I'm singing, I'm singing!
