Elvis Presley - My Way (Legendado)

My way é o título em inglês da canção "Comme L'habitude" de composição do músico francês Claude François.

Em 1971, Frank Sinatra fez a primeira versão da música em língua inglesa, que foi adaptada por Paul Anka, se tornando um dos seus maiores sucessos.

A primeira versão do single por parte do astro do rock, Elvis Presley, foi gravada em 1971. A performance do vídeo foi realizada durante o seu concerto no Hawaii, e a sua captação foi feita para a produção do álbum "Aloha from Hawaii".

Letra (inglês):
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 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 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,
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 words he truly feels;
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way!
