Frank Sinatra - My way

English

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 live that's full
I travelled 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 the byway
And 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
"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
