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've travelled each and every 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 chartered course
Each careful step along the 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, 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

I have always loved this song, but in the end when he says, to say that things he truly feels and not the worlds of one who kneels. What does that suppost to mean, not doing what God wants us to do, I am not sure I agree with that. what do you think.

My reply to nnb: I do not know if that is the case or not. I believe it's all about overcoming obstacles. The fact he says "I did it my way," well, that could mean either he's being self-glorifying out of selfishness, or he's proud of his accomplishments because he overcame those obstacles.

I had a lot of struggles myself, but I overcame them, too.
