And now the end is near
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 exception

      I planned each charted course
      Each careful step along the byway
      Oh, and more, much more than this


                            I did it my way


Yes, there were times, I'm sure you know
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 fails, 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, 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 words he truly feels
      And not the words he would reveal
      The record shows I took the blows




                  And did it my way
