Music Lesson: My Way

Average: 3.7 (12 votes)

"An oldie but a goodie" is an English expression meaning just because something is old doesn't mean it isn't good! In that spirit, this weeks music lesson is based on the song 'My way' by Frank Sinatra. Have you listened to his music before? Random fact: The famous movie 'The Godfather' has a story line that is based on how Frank Sinatra became famous. It's quite a terrifying story! You have two jobs to complete. Firstly, to complete the gaps in the song. Secondly, which tense is frequently used in this song and why? CLUE: This song is all about life experiences...

My Way - Frank Sinatra 

And now, the end is near,
And so I face the final _(1)_
My friends, I'll say it clear;
I'll state my case of which I'm certain.

I've lived a _(2)_ that's full -
I've travelled each and every highway.
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

_(3)_? 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 _(4)_ 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 _(5)_,
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood _(6)_
And did it my way.

I've loved, I've _(7)_ and cried,
I've had my fill - my share of losing.
But now, as tears subside,
I find it all so _(8)_

To think I did all that,
And may I say, not in a _(9)_ 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 _(10)_ of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way.

Yes, it was my way.
