Frank Sinatra - A Voz

Francis Albert Sinatra, nasceu em Hoboken (New Jersey) no dia 12/12/1915 e morreu no dia 14/05/1998...
Ficou conhecido por "A Voz" (The voice) ou "Olhos Azuis" (Blue Eyes)...

Aqui fica a minha música favorita....


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 ev’ry 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,
But 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 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,
“No, oh no not me,
I did it my way”.

For what is a man, what has he got ?
If not himself, the 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 !
