Anka, Paul - 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 ev'ry 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

    The original Song is french Chanson " Comme d'habitude" of Claude François. But much better is Frank Sinatra and Paul Anka Version.

  8. LagLog _

    David Bowie made a similar song using the same melodies except different lyrics. It was called "Even a fool learns to love" and then heard the melodies on a radio once but it was Paul Anka's and Frank Sinatra's song "My Way", he was so mad and pissed off so he made "Life on mars" as a revenge song. You can search a video about this up here in youtube.

  9. Ronald Casas

    Actually, the original version is a french song titled "Comme d'habitude" composed in 1967 by Jacques Revaux. Lyrics belong to Claude François and Gilles Thibaut. Paul Anka wrote the english lyrics for Sinatra, who recorded this new version in 1969 with the title "My Way". The meaning of text is completely different in each version.

  19. Karine Barry

    Paul, the only thing you have managed to do is to butcher a French masterpiece. My way is not Frank Sinatra legacy, it's Claude Francois legacy. It makes me so angry all the credits you took for this song.....Shame on you

  20. Rafael Arianto

    Wow and he’s still alive.
    A legend.
    Out of all of the legends (I know) he is still alive and active.

    Anyone who can recomend me some other singers from the same timeline as frank sinatra, dean martin and paul anka, please let me know. I just discovered them and I’m really into it.

  21. Herowingss

    The French language make the song more interesting and sad but the English version the lyrics is sad

  22. Lupo Solitario

    Grande questo mix con la voce di Frank Sinatra. Bravi!

  25. rel375

    Most people don't know it's originally a french song (Comme d'habitude) composed by Claure François and Jacques Reveaux in 1967. Three years later (in 1969), Paul Anka wrote english lyrics on the same music to make the famous "My way" for Frank Sinatra who gave much success and fame to the song.

  26. Ray Brunka

    when I sing this at Karaoke , I do Pauls way not Franks. Thanks for the song Paul I'm 81 and still doing it only a great song can make you do that

    My Way é o título em inglês da canção francesa Comme d'habitude, que foi lançada pela primeira vez pelo autor, Claude François, em 1967, na França. Em 1968, Frank Sinatra lançou sua versão em inglês, adaptada por Paul Anka e que virou um de seus maiores clássicos. É uma das músicas populares mais gravadas da história.
    A versão de estúdio de Elvis Presley foi gravada em junho de 1971 e lançada só em 1995 no disco Walk A Mile In My Shoes. Existem as versões ao vivo do show do Hawaii que foi lançada no disco ao vivo em 1973 denominado Aloha from Hawaii e outra lançada em 1977 em um compacto simples com America The Beautiful no "lado B", não se esquecendo da versão do disco Elvis in Concert, uma versão ao vivo de 1977.
    Em 16 de julho de 1994, no show realizado no Dodge Stadium de Los Angeles, Os Três Tenores Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo e José Carreras gravam My Way, estando Frank Sinatra na plateia. No filme do grupo de punk rock inglês Sex Pistols, The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle, de 1980, o baixista da banda, Sid Vicious, canta uma versão da música.
    Em 14 de setembro de 2012 foi lançado o filme de origem francesa intitulado My Way, o Mito Além da Música, dirigido por Florent Emilio Siri, que conta a vida de Claude François, coautor da versão original composta em 1967. (Colaboração de Juares de Marcos Jardim - Santo André / São Paulo - SP)

  64. The Night King

    Sorry but that song was written for frank. I know anka wrote the english version of a great french song but not one could ever delivered the same as frank did therefore he made it his.

  65. Robert Marcou

    Paul Anka, faire un succés mondial avec MY WAY, QUI N'A PLUS RIEN AVOIR AVEC L'ORIGINAL EN FRANÇAIS, LES PLUS GRAND INTERPRÉTE L'ON REPRISES ECRITE PAR C FRANCOIS ET J REVAUX L'ORIGINAL N'AURAIT PAS EUT LE MÊME SUCCÈS SI P ANKA N'AVAIT RACHETÉE LES DROIT EST RÉÉCRIT UNE AUTRE HISTOIRE 🤔😤👍👏👏👏

  66. Mary Ann Maycen

    You may have written this for Frank Sinatra, but this is the best rendition ever. I love all your songs. You are the BEST.

  67. mel clo

    The horrid little man takes credit for writing it, bloody nerve, just the English lyrics mate, and you don't do the melody justice either, I am so mad.

  68. Anna Fern

    Always timeless.

  69. Virginia Vai Wells

    What a humble man! This reminds me the theme "Sorry seems to be the hardest word". Elton John made an impeccable version. Then Joe Cocker took that letter to pierce the clouds, so that it could see the Sun shining closer.

  70. Daniela Battistutta

    PAUL ANKA FRANK SINATRA CANTANTI EÇCEZZIONALI . PAUL ANKA HA COMPOSTO QUESTA CANZONE MERAVIGLIOSA
