And now, the end is hereAnd so I face the final curtainMy friend, I'll say it clearI'll state my case, of which I'm certainI've lived a life that's fullI traveled each and ev'ry highwayAnd more, much more than this, I did it my way
Regrets, I've had a fewBut then again, too few to mentionI did what I had to do and saw it through without exemptionI planned each charted course, each careful step along the bywayAnd more, much more than this, I did it my way
Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knewWhen I bit off more than I could chewBut through it all, when there was doubtI ate it up and spit it outI faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way
I've loved, I've laughed and criedI've had my fill, my share of losingAnd now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusingTo think I did all thatAnd 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 naughtTo say the things he truly feels and not the words of one who kneelsThe record shows I took the blows and did it my way!
Yes, it was my way
