According to the My Way Songfacts, this originated as French song called Comme d’habitude (translation: “As Usual”) by Claude Francois . The French version tells the story of a man, living the end of his marriage, love killed by the boredom of everyday life.

Paul Anka discovered this song while visiting France, and re-wrote the lyrics as “My Way.” Upon returning to the US, he gave it to Frank Sinatra, and it became one of his signature songs. Anka’s lyrics changed the meaning to be about a man looking back fondly on a life he lived on his own terms.
