About My Way

"My Way" is a song popularized in 1969 by Frank Sinatra. Its lyrics were written by Paul Anka and set to the music of the French song "Comme d'habitude" composed and written by French songwriter Jacques Revaux,performed in 1967 by Claude François. Anka's English lyrics are unrelated to the original French song. The song was a success for a variety of performers including Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and Sid Vicious. Sinatra's version of "My Way" spent 75 weeks in the UK Top 40, a record which still stands.

And now the end is near
So I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll say it clear
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain
I live a life 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 byway
And more, much more than this
I did it my way

Yes, there were times and 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 face it all and I stood tall
And did it my way

I loved, I laughed, I 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 
May I say, not in a shy way
No, 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 (the record shows) I took the blows
And did it my way

To say the things he truly feels (what to feel)
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows we took the blows
And did it my way
