I did it 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 life that’s full.
I’ve 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 charted 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.
