And now, the end is near,
And so I face the final curtain,
My friend. I'll say it clear,
I'll stay my case of which I'm certain.
I've lived a live that's full.
I traveled each and every highway,
And more, much more than this, I did it m
Regrets, I've had a few,
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do,
And saw it thru without exemption.
I planned each charted course,
Each careful step along the byway,
And more, much more than this, I did it m___...y way.
Yes there were times, I'm sure you knew,
When I bit off more than I could chew,
But thru 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 m___...y 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,
"No, oh no not me,
I did it m___y way".
For what is a man, what has he got?
If not himself, then he has naught.
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 m___y way!
