And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I'll make it clear
I'll state my case, of which I am certain

I've lived a life that's full
I traveled each and every highway
And more, much more
I did it, 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, much more
I did it, I did it my way

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
And through it all, whenever there was doubt
I ate it up and spit it out
I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it, did it my way

I've loved, laughed and cried
I had my fill, my share of losing
And now, as tears subside
I find that it's all so amusing

And to think I did all that
And may I say not in a shy way
No, no, not me
I did it my way

For what is a man, what has he got
If not himself, then he has naught
Not to say the things that he truly feels
And not the words of someone who kneels
The record shows I took all the blows
And did it my way
