Description

My Way je píseň zpopularizovaná Frankem Sinatrou. Text písně napsal Paul Anka a to na hudbu vytvořenou podle francouzské písně Comme d’habitude zkomponované v roce 1967 Claudem Françoisem a Jacquesem Revauxem s textem Clauda Françoise a Gillese Thibaulta. Ankův anglický text nijak nesouvisí s francouzským originálem. Skladba je jednou z nejčastěji citovaných cover verzí v hudební historii. V česko-slovenském prostředí je známá verze Hany Hegerové Žila som správne se slovenským textem od Milana Lasici.

Slova písně pojednávají o muži, který je blízko smrti. Je sám se sebou spokojený a přebírá zodpovědnost za své jednání, protože přes všechny problémy v životě se snažil udržet vysokou úroveň své morální integrity.

Text písně:

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 every 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 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
