English Translation by Celine

Je me lève Et je te bouscule Tu n’te réveilles pas
Comme d’habitude
I get up And I bump into you You don’t wake up
As usual

Sur toi Je remonte le drap J’ai peur que tu aies froid
Comme d’habitude
On you I pull up the sheet I’m scared you might get cold
As usual

Ma main Caresse tes cheveux Presque malgré moi
Comme d’habitude
My hand Strokes your hair Almost in spite of myself
As usual

Mais toi Tu me tournes le dos
Comme d’habitude
But you You turn your back on me
As usual

Alors Je m’habille très vite Je sors de la chambre
Comme d’habitude
So I quickly get dressed I get out of the bedroom
As usual

Tout seul Je bois mon café Je suis en retard
Comme d’habitude
All alone I drink my coffee I’m late
As usual

Sans bruit Je quitte la maison Tout est gris dehors
Comme d’habitude
Quietly I leave the house Everything is gray outside
As usual

J’ai froid Je relève mon col
Comme d’habitude
I’m cold I pull up my collar
As usual

Comme d’habitude Toute la journée Je vais jouer A faire semblant
Comme d’habitude Je vais sourire
Comme d’habitude Je vais même rire
Comme d’habitude Enfin je vais vivre
Comme d’habitude
As usual All day I’ll be playing At pretending
As usual I will smile
As usual I will even laugh
As usual I will live
As usual

Et puis Le jour s’en ira Moi je reviendrai
Comme d’habitude
Then The day will go I will come back
As usual

Toi Tu seras sortie Pas encore rentrée
Comme d’habitude
You You’ll be out Not back yet
As usual

Tout seul J’irai me coucher Dans ce grand lit froid
Comme d’habitude
All alone I’ll go and lie down In this big cold bed
As usual

Mes larmes Je les cacherai
Comme d’habitude
My tears I will hide them
As usual

Mais comme d’habitude Même la nuit Je vais jouer A faire semblant
Comme d’habitude Tu rentreras
Comme d’habitude Je t’attendrai
Comme d’habitude Tu me souriras
Comme d’habitude
But as usual Even at night I will play At pretending
As usual You’ll come back
As usual I will wait for you
As usual You will smile at me
As usual

Comme d’habitude Tu te déshabilleras
Oui comme d’habitude Tu te coucheras
Oui comme d’habitude On s’embrassera
Comme d’habitude
As usual You will get undressed
Yes as usual You will get into bed
Yes as usual We will kiss
As usual

Comme d’habitude On fera semblant
Comme d’habitude On fera l’amour
Oui comme d’habitude On fera semblant
Comme d’habitude
As usual We will pretend
As usual We will make love
Yes as usual We will pretend
As usual


My Way, sung by Paul Anka

My Way, sung by Frank Sinatra

My Way
English Lyrics by Paul Anka, written for Frank Sinatra
1969

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

Regrets 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 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 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

Yes it was my way
