Please help me settle this debate with my gf. I will not give any clues to the right answer or the wrong answer, only know that if you pick the right answer you did a good job because that’s what I picked as well.

We all know the song “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by the Proclaimers. Yesterday, while catching an old episode of ‘How I Met Your Mother’ on Lifetime (seriously), I caught the episode where Marshall and Ted are singing this beautiful song on repeat, as the cassette tape is stuck in the tape deck (anyone under 20 is going ‘whaaaaaat?’ right now).

I started singing it and then Liz joined in, but to my shock and horror, she started singing it differently. Our point of contention is the chorus at the 1:34 mark of this clip.

The main contention is whether or not there are three or four instances of whatever it is they’re saying.

Here’s where you come in. Let me know what you think they’re saying:

Da da lat da (da da lat da)
Da da lat da (da da lat da)

– or –

Da da da (da da da)
Da da da (da da da)

Votes will be tallied at the end of the day.
