MY WAY (French title: Comme d'habitude (As Usual)

If you need material for in-between songs, I get a lot of mileage out of telling the history of this song in my act. The audience is very enthusiastic to hear about it. It's really a great tune and everyone loves listening to it. The melody is tops but the original French lyrics are rather limp.

Interesting how the song came about:

My Way

Good video too ....and translation of the French words
