My Way


And now, the end is near,
And so I face the final curtain
My friends, I'll say it clear;
I'll state my case of which I'm certain

I've lived a life that's full -
I've travelled each and every highway
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way

Regrets? I've had a few,
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption

I planned each charted course -
Each careful step along the byway,
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew,
When I bit off more than I could chew,
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it my way

I've loved, I've laughed and cried,
I've had my fill - my share of losing
But now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing

To think I did all that,
And may I say, not in a shy way -
Oh no Oh no, not me
I did it my way

For what is a man? What has he got?
If not himself - Then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way

Yes, it was my way
