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 travelled each and every highway,
And more, much more than this, I did it my way.

Regrets I have a few, but then again, too few to mention,
I did what I had to do, and saw it thru‘ without exception,
I planned each chartered course,
Each careful step along the by-way.
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 thru‘ 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 not
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

Oh Lord won’t you tell me I’m sure I don’t know,
Who makes the plans that change our lives so,
From a place in the country so peaceful and calm,
We moved up to London as the bombs fell around,
On a street by the river where the rent it was cheap,
The Landlord he told us „Its yours to keep“,
For a regular payment week after week,
You’ve always a roof under which you can sleep.

The years passed by, the war came to an end,
We lived our lives did nothing to offend,
But the Landlord’s conditions yearly they grew,
With the size of his gut and his housing values,
He’d kneel on a Sunday and pray to the Lord,
For ideals of love his wealth can’t afford,
When the Bastard he came round to raise up rent,
We swallowed our pride and we smiled our best.

Bricks and mortar, a kingdom of stone,
When you go when you’re all alone,
They’ll carve your name where you lie,
And I for one no tears will cry.

Greed knows no boundaries, greed does not feel,
I’m damned if I’ll die for a property deal,
The woman next door she just passed away,
For the rent grew so high that she just couldn’t pay,
And there in her bed she closed up her eyes,
The last time she gazed on this world of lies,
With nowhere to go and nothing saved,
She went to the next world and the Bastard he smiled.

Bricks and mortar, a kingdom of stone,
When you go you’re all alone,
They’ll carve your name where you lie,
And I for one no tears will cry.

Oh Lord won’t you tell me I’m sure I don’t know,
What makes some people so callous and cold,
I’ve lived in this house for forty-four years,
My children were born here, its here I’ll grow old,
A curse on you, Bastard Landlord be damned,
Who needs one more house like a beach needs more sand,
I’ll stay here till I’m done only then will I go,
Was never meant one man should treat others so.

LIVE AT THE ROYAL OAK MUSIC THEATER:

Seen the carnival at Rome
Had the women I had the booze
All I can remember now
Is little kids without no shoes
So I saw that train
And I got on it
With a heartful of hate
And a lust for vomit
Now I’m walking on the sunnyside of the street

Stepped over bodies in Bombay
Tried to make it to the U.S.A.
Ended up in Nepal
Up on the roof with nothing at all
And I knew that day
I was going to stay
Right where I am, on the sunnyside of the street

Been in a palace, been in a jail
I just don’t want to be reborn a snail
Just want to spend eternity
Right where I am, on the sunnyside of the street

As my mother wept it was then I swore
To take my life as I would a whore
I know I’m better than before
I will not be reconstructed
Just wanna stay right here
On the sunnyside of the street

You gotta walk that mile Honeychild
You gotta walk that mile Honeychild
Well I’ll show you what is hip
As we walk down Leeson strip

& I’ll do it for the ghost of a smile
Just the ghost, the ghost of a smile
Just the ghost, the ghost of a smile

You can’t take it with you when you go
You can’t take it with you when you go
You gotta walk, walk that mile
& I’ll be with you Honeychild
& I’ll do it for the ghost of a smile
Just the ghost, the ghost of a smile
Just the ghost, the ghost of a smile

Don’t wait too long
Don’t wait too long
Don’t wait too long or I’ll be gone

Don’t wait too long
Don’t wait too long
Don’t wait too long 
Or I’ll be gone

Just the ghost, the ghost of a smile
Just the ghost, the ghost of a smile
Just the ghost, the ghost of a smile
Just the ghost, the ghost of a smile
