My Way – SSA(A)
“My Way” is a song popularized by Frank Sinatra. Its lyrics were written by Paul Anka and set to music based on the French song “Comme d’habitude” composed in 1967 by Claude François and Jacques Revaux. Anka’s English lyrics are unrelated to the original French song and tell the story of a man who, having grown old, reflects on his life as death approaches. He is comfortable with his mortality and takes responsibility for how he dealt with all the challenges of life while maintaining a respectable degree of integrity. Especially effective when sung by a male voice choir, but suited to all voices. A rousing song – for the moment when you need to wake up your audience a little!
