(I Did It) My Way

(Я всегда все делал по-своему)

Claude François, Jacques Revaux, Gilles Thibault, Paul Anka

Der französischen Vorlage des Liedes ging eine unveröffentlichte englische Fassung voraus, die der Franzose (!) Claude François 1966 aus Liebeskummer textete und komponierte. Das Stück wollte niemand haben. François überarbeitete mit Jacques Revaux ein Jahr später die Musik, zu der Gilles Thibaut dann das bekannte "Comme d'habitude" textete.

Paul Anka schrieb für Frank Sinatra einen englischen Text auf die französische Vorlage.

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.

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 upon 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,
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.
