Giovanni Mascellaro - My Way

MY WAY (Claude François-Paul Anka)


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've traveled each and ev'ry highway

But more, much more than this

I did it my way


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

But 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'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 my 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 my way!
