Frank Sinatra - 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 traveled each and ev'ry 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 , I saw it through without exemption
I planned each charted course, each careful step along the highway
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
And 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
The right to say the things he feels and not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows and did it my way!

According to the My Way Songfacts, this originated as French song called Comme D'habitude (translation: "As Usual") by Claude Francois . The French version tells the story of a man, living the end of his marriage, love killed by the boredom of everyday life. Paul Anka discovered this song while visiting France, and re-wrote the lyrics as "My Way." Upon returning to the US, he gave it to Frank Sinatra, and it became one of his signature songs. Anka's lyrics changed the meaning to be about a man looking back fondly on a life he lived on his own terms. Best crooner ever lived, just so easy as Frank sang, if somebody likes to compare THE Voice no other singer can ever replace him or just imitate this guy! Unforgetable voice, nice lyrics highly recomendable!

"enstrumental" Yes, it was my way Original French lyrics: Je me lève et je te bouscule Tu n'te réveilles pas Comme d'habitude Sur toi je remonte le drap J'ai peur que tu aies froid Comme d'habitude Ma main caresse tes cheveux Presque malgré moi Comme d'habitude Mais toi Tu me tournes le dos Comme d'habitude Alors je m'habille très vite Je sors de la chambre Comme d'habitude Tout seul je bois mon café Je suis en retard Comme d'habitude Sans bruit je quitte la maison Tout est gris dehors Comme d'habitude J'ai froid Je relève mon col Comme d'habitude Comme d'habitude Toute la journée Je vais jouer A faire semblant Comme d'habitude Je vais sourire Comme d'habitude Je vais mÆme rire Comme d'habitude Enfin je vais vivre Comme d'habitude Et puis Le jour s'en ira Moi je reviendrai Comme d'habitude Toi Tu seras sortie Et pas encore rentrée Comme d'habitude Tout seul J'irai me coucher Dans ce grand lit froid Comme d'habitude Mes larmes Je les cacherai Comme d'habitude Comme d'habitude MÆme la nuit Je vais jouer A faire semblant Comme d'habitude Tu rentreras Comme d'habitude Je t'attendrai Comme d'habitude Tu me souriras Comme d'habitude Comme d'habitude Tu te déshabilleras Comme d'habitude Tu te coucheras Comme d'habitude On s'embrassera Comme d'habitude (originally edited by Tedtrivia
