My way

And when the end was near
Both of us faced the final flurry
When we got on that plane
We took as much as we could carry

I've got a coat that's full
Of silverware, it's quite a display
'cause even when we left
I did it my way

Salad forks, I took a few
But not too few to mention
I did what I wanted to
Every day, without exemption

I stashed some butter knives
Right in here, my inside pocket
I reluctantly decided to leave
The kitchen faucet

Yes there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
So I kept a souvenir spoon
To remind me I'm a big buffoon
I caused as much ruckous as I could
I did it my way

I've loved I've laughed I've lied
I've had my fill, my share of losing
Only someone with no pride
Could find any of this amusing

To think I did all that
And may I say not in a shy way
No, there ain't a shy bone in me
I did it my way

For what is a man, what has he got
If not some forks, then he has naught
To say the things he truly feels
He must swipe some stainless steel
The record shows they were beneath my clothes
I did it my way
