It’s one thing to cover Frank Sinatra, it’s another thing to completely own the song as Elvis Presley does here. This is a fantastic cover of an already fantastic song.

The Lyrics

And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain.
My friends, I’ll say it clear,
And I’ll state my case, of which I’m certain.
I’ve lived a life that’s full,
I traveled each and every highway.
And more, much more than this, I did it my, 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.
And I planned each charted course, each careful step along life’s by way
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, I cried
I’ve had my fill, my share of losing.
And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing.
Just 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 not
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.
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, my way.
