I did it my way


Anchorage, Alaska, USA ---> Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentinien
  
01.07.2011 ---> 10.10.2012
  
24.525 Kilometer
  
 
Bahia Lapataia - Am Ende aller Strassen


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 ev'ry 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,
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 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, then 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!
