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 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 by-way
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 laughed and cried, I´ve had my fill my share of losing
And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing
Today I killed a cat and may I say, not in a shy way
Oh no, oh no not me, I did it my way

For what is a brat, what has he got
if not himself, then he has not
to say the things he truely feels
and not the words of one who kneels
The record shows, I took the blows
and did it my way
