Today is Faldo’s Birthday - It's not a National Holiday Yet???

And to help celebrate, I give you the words to a song, best sung by Frank Sinatra and Elvis Presley – “My Way”.

I thought I would let these two light weights share the stage with Faldo. I mean if I can’t help out with the memories of the “little people” on my birthday, what would that say about me?

By Paul Anka (that is three lightweights I helped today!):

And now the end is nearer.
And so I am closer to,
The final curtain.
My friends, I'll make it clear,
I'll state my case of which I'm certain.

I've lived a life that's full.
I traveled each, most every highway.
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Regrets, I've had more than 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 youth subsides,
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.

Yes, It was my way.
