My Way
(Claude Fran├žois, Jacques Revaux / Paul Anka / Arr.: Ko-Do 2020)
 

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 exception


I planned each chartered 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 fullfilled 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, 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
