Robbie Williams _ My Way

Der großartige Song  MY WAY von Elvis Presley / Frank Sinatra,
hier in einer Version von Robbie Williams…


Elvis Presley _ My way

Der französische Komponist und Chansonnier Claude Francois schrieb 1966 eine Balade mit dem Titel FOR YOU. 1968 verfasste Paul Anka zu der Melodie einen völlig neuen Text, den Frank Sinatra noch im Dezember 1967 im Studio aufnahm und 1969 als Single veröffentlichte.

Bis heute gibt es sehr viele Coveraufnahmen, zu den bekanntesten gehört die Aufnahme von Elvis Presley. 1973 sang Elvis   MY WAY   in der Show „Aloha from Hawaii“, 1976 produzierte er die Single bei RCA.

Der Text …

And now the end is near
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
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 exception

I planned each charted course
Each careful step along the byway
Oh, and more, much more than this
I did it my way

Yes, there were times, I’m sure you know
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 fails, 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, 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 words he truly feels
And not the words he would reveal
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way

Bilder seines Lebens …
