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
ive travelled each and every highway
and more, much more than this
i did it my way

regrets ive 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 by-way
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 spit 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 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 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
