My Way
Jacques Revaux, vert.: Paul Anka
uitv.: Frank Sinatra

And now, the end is near, and so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll make it clear, I'll state my case of which I'm certain
I've lived a live that's full, I traveled 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 chartered course, each careful step along the byway
And more, much more than this - I did it my way

Yes there were times, I guess you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
And with 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
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 has 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

Yes, it was my way
