Bernanke sings: I did it my way


And now, the end is near,
And so I face the final curtain.
My friends, I’ll say it clear;
I’ll state my case of which I’m certain.

I’ve banked a whole life full
and swapped my neighbour’s money
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 the market’s 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 inflation was more than I could chew,
But through it all, when there was debt,
I closed my eyes and did no thing
but print, the holy press
And did it my way.

I’ve lied, cheated, denied,
I’ve had my fill – my share of losing.
But now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.

To think I did all that,
it’s all in ruin, 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 – that’s what I brought
my land in ruin, the whole world too

where is my gold, I love that too

The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way.

Yes, it was my way.
