Frank Sinatra 
My Way Lyrics

As mentioned on an earlier page, Paul Anka heard this song in it's original formwhile on holiday in southern France in the late 60's. As expected, the song was in French and not in English. He flew to Paris and negotiated rights to the song for $1 ... but royalties from Anka's version or anyone else's, were to be paid to the originators of the melody of the song. So when back in America, Anka re-wrote the song specifically for Frank Sinatra. 

Frank Sinatra hated doing more than one take on any of his recordings and this one he nailed down in the very first take on Dec 30th 1968. He did the recording before heading off to a New Years party at the SANDS Hotel in Vegas. Sinatra enjoyed the song in the beginning but as time went on, he learned to actually hate the song.

Frank Sinatra My Way Lyrics

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 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 exemption
I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
And 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
Oh, 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

Yes, it was my way
