“I did it my way”

My Way
Frank Sinatra

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 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 exemption

I’ve 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, than he has naugth
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

you go to my head…

sinatra cantando you go to my head….

you go to my head and you linger like a haunting refrain,
and i find you spinning ’round in my brain
like the bubbles in a glass of champagne…

you go to my head like a sip of sparkling Burgundy brew
and i find the very mention of you
like the kicker in a julep or two…

the thrill of the thought that you might give a thought to my plea
cast a spell over me,
still i say to myself – get a hold of yourself –
can’t you see that it never can be…

you go to my head with a smile that makes my temperature rise,
like a summer with a thousand Julys
you intoxicate my soul with your eyes…

though i’m certain that this heart of mine
hasn’t a ghost of a chance in this crazy romance
you go to my head…

(Haven Gillespie & Joe Fred Coots)

“It had to be you, wonderful you, it had to be you”

It Had To Be You

(G.Kahn, I.Jones)

Why do I do, just as you say, why must
I just, give you your way Why do I sigh,
why don’t I try – to forget
It must have been, that something lovers call fate
Kept me saying: “I have to wait”
I saw them all, just couldn’t fall – ‘til we met
It had to be you, it had to be you
I wandered around, and finally found – the somebody who
Could make me be true, and could make me be blue
And even be glad, just to be sad – thinking of you
Some others I’ve seen, might never be mean
Might never be cross, or try to be boss, but they wouldn’t do
For nobody else, gave me a thrill – with all your faults
I love you still
It had to be you, wonderful you, it had to be you
