Original is never finished

Bluffée par l'énergie débordante de cette campagne ADIDAS, par le chant choral de la fin, par les paroles de Paul Anka, une sorte de regard rétrospectif sur la vie d'un homme mûr et pensif qui affirme, à propos de chacun des faits marquants de son existence : « I did it my way » (vous y verrez ce que vous y voulez, je ne fais que citer la page wikipedia de la chanson), ce qui n'a vraiment rien à voir avec Cloclo qui lève son col en pleurant sur un mariage tristounet, non ?

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, 
"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! 

Yes, it was my way.
