I Did It My Way
November 16, 2005

Music leadin Gen - Kirk moving into big area
And now, the end is here .
And so I face the final curtain Gen - destroyed side of ship
My friend, I'll say it clear Gen - lectures Picard as he walks up stairs
I'll state my case, of which I'm certain .
I've lived Cloudminders - looking at girl on bed
A life that's full Wink - putting on boots
I traveled each Turnabout - change from girl
And ev'ry highway Mirror - walking with Spock
And more, much more than this, I did it my way Gamesters - Kirk kisses, hits
Regrets, I've had a few Undis - picture of David
But then again, too few to mention Undis - shakes head as Klingon leaves
I did what I had to do Undis - sees bird of prey, gives up
And saw it through without exemption Undis - last look at Spock
I planned each charted course, SfS - talking to admiral
Each careful step SfS - tricks McCoy's guard
Along the byway SfS - deep sigh as he's on bridge
And more, SfS - Kirk over Sulu's shoulder
Much more than this, SfS - Kirk collapses after David's death
I did it my way SfS - blows up ship
Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew FF - big bad guy shakes him
When I bit off more than I could chew .
But through it all, when there was doubt FF - backed into corner
I ate it up and spit it out FF - kicks bad guy in the knees
I faced it all and I stood tall FF - after fight
And did it my way FF - hits guy who kissed him
I've loved, I've laughed CITY - walking with Edit
And cried CITY - after her death
I've had my fill FF - reaches for Spock at end
My share of losing WoK - Spock dies
And now, as tears subside, I find it all so amusing Gen - smiles at Picard and rides away
To think I did all that Voyage - turns to look at people applauding
And may I say, not in a shy way, Gen - Kirk in glare of reporters
Oh, no, oh, no, not me, Voy - Kirk in chair waves
I did it my way Voy - Kirk waves, whales appear
For what is a man, what has he got? FF - Kirk will keep his pain, thank you
If not himself, then he has naught .
To say the things he truly feels and not the words of one who kneels FF - stands up to god, who blasts him
The record shows I took the blows and did it! Gen - extension falls
My way! Gen - dies
Music bridge Gen - Kirk WANTS to sit in commander's chair
Yes, it was my way Gen - But he makes decision to go, happily
