The Lyrics

When I'm shaking, yeah I know I'm gonna be,
I'm gonna be the one who’s shaking hands with you.
When I'm smiling, yeah I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the one who's smiling next to you.

If I'm praying, yes I know I'm gonna be,
I'm gonna be the one who praying hard for you.
And if I grow bald, yes I know I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be the one who's grows bald next to you.

And I would crawl five hundred miles
And I would crawl five hundred more
Just to be the monk who crawled a thousand miles
To kneel down on your floor.

Dalai Lama! Dalai Lama!
Dalai Lama! Dalai Lama!
Dalai La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-ma!
Dalai Lama! Dalai Lama!
Dalai Lama! Dalai Lama!
Dalai La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-ma!

And I would crawl five hundred miles
And I would crawl five hundred more
Just to be the monk who crawled a thousand miles
To kneel down on your floor.
