And now, the end is near


#1

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 traveled each and every 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
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,…


#2

And so I face the final curtain
My friend, I’ll say it clear
A basket case of that I’m certain
I’ve lived a lie that’s full
Lost wheels on each and every highway
But more, much more than this
I did it my way

Of wheels, I’ve lost a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through with tax exemption
I scammed and scammed of course
Each whompy wheel 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 pillow 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 had the gall
To swindle my way.

I’ve loved, I’ve laughed and cried
I’ve had my fill my share of Ambien
And now, I’ll wash it down
With more red wine
Send money my way.
