And now, the end is near                    |1  |3  |
And so I face the final curtain             |5m/b7   |6d |   
My friend, I'll say it clear                |2  |2/1  |
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain    |5  |1  |
I've lived a life that's full               |1  |17  |
I traveled each and every highway           |4  |4m |
And more, much more than this, I did it my way |1   |5  |4  |1    |

[A]
Regrets, I've had a few                    |1  |3  |
But then again, too few to mention           |5m/b7   |6d |
I did what I had to do                       |2  |2  |
And saw it through without exemption        |5  |1  |
I planned each charted course            |1  |17  |
Each careful step along the byway         |4  |4m |
And more, much more than this, I did it my way |1   |5  |4  |1    |

[B]
Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew             |1  |17  |
When I bit off more than I could chew               |4  |4  |
But through it all, when there was doubt            |2  |5  |
I ate it up and spit it out                         |3  |6  |
I faced it all and I stood tall and did it my way |2   |5  |4  |1    |

[A]
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

[B]
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
