(1968) Jacques Revaux, Claude François, Gilles Thibault, Paul Anka
And now, the end is near and so I got to face The final curtain, girl Friends I say clear and state her case of which I'm uncertain I've lived a life that's full of travelled each and every highway And more, much more than this, I did it my way
Yeah, regrets, I've had a few But then again, who feel to me uncertain. I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption I planned each other course, each careful footstep along the byway, Yeah, and more, much more than this, I did my way
Yes, there were times, I'm sure you know When I did all much more than I could do But threw it all, when there was doubt, on everyday And it's not enough, I faced it all And as big as all did my way.
Oh, I've laughed and cried, had my fill my share of losing And now, as tears subside, counted also music To think like the old lad And may I say not in a sky away, Oh, no no no, You're not me, I did it my way.
What is a man, what have he got If not himself, and he had not to may the things He truly feels not words of one for use With that shows, I took the blows and did it my way!
