    Default A classic song....

    If songs are a reflection of life, I wonder how many would be able to sing and carry this song to their graves....

    And now, the end is near,
    And so I face the final curtain.
    My friends, 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 travelled 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.
    But 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.
    Decided to post it here since I feel the older crowd here would know the title at the first glance of the lyrics.

    Yah, reminds me that I'm old enough. Done it the wrong way, sometimes.

    Frank Sinatra - My Way.

    Of cos, the tempo of the song is relatively slow, without none of that modern jazz, heavy rock thingy. So I'm not very sure if the younger crowd would like that.
