MY WAY




And now, the end is near;


And so I face the final curtain.


My friend, 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 traveled each


and every highway;


But 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,


But 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.


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,


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 I did it,


"My Way"
