The end is near and so I got to face 
The final curtain
Friends, I'll say it clear 
And state my case of which I'm certain

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

Yes, 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 footstep along the byway, yeah
And more, much more than this
I did 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 all and spat it out
I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it my way

I've laughed and cried
Had my fill, my share of losing
And now, as tears subside 
Found it all so amusing

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

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