MY WAY

And now the end is near, and so I face the final curtain

My friend, Ill say it clear, Ill state my case of which Im certain

Ive lived a life thats full, I traveled each and evry high way

And more, much more than this, I did it my way.

Regrets, I 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 chartered course each careful step along the byway

And more, much more than this I did it my way.

Yes, there were times, Im 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 split it out

I faced it all, and I stood tall and did it my way.

Ive loved, Ive laughed and cried Ive had my fill, my share of loosing

And 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 is not

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.

Da-du-da, du-da-da

Da-da, da-da

Da-du-da, du-da-da

I did it my way!
