my way lyrics – frank sinatra

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 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 not
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
