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

As many of you will know, I am not a fan of music. In fact to be honest, I actually dislike it but I often found myself singing what I could remember of Sinatra, Simon and Garfunkel, Piaf, Diana Ross songs. Apologies to them all. I am to singing what Man City are to consistency!

As the trip wore on, I found myself digging deep sometimes for inspiration and Abba’s “Mama Mia”, “The Eagle”, Slade’s “Dapple Rose” or Wizard’s “Oh, I wish it could be Christmas Every Day” all had me thinking back to my teens and forgetting the hill ahead. Happy Days!

“My Way”, was and still is special to me. I guess I am a bit of an “Outsider” and somebody who is prepared to stand up for what he believes in.
I do what I BELIEVE in and I BELIEVE in this project. I BELIEVE in BJØRN and I BELIEVED I could do the 92 clubs.

Were there easier ways? Yes
Did I make mistakes? Yes
Would I do it again? Yes
Would I make mistakes again? Yes
Would I make the same mistakes again?
I hope not!

I am sitting quietly, planning the next stage of the project and trying to duplicate the good and ditch the bad. Let’s see!

Regrets I’ve had a few
But then again too few to mention
