In 1968, David Bowie tried writing English lyrics. Bowie's version is "Even a Fool Learns to Love":
Frank Sinatra rejected Bowie's lyrics:
"I was so pissed," said Bowie later. "I thought, 'God, I could have done with that money'. And so I wrote Life on Mars, which was sort of a Sinatra-ish parody, but done in a more rock style."And the work went to Paul Anka.
Now, just a couple days ago, HuffPo put up "This Farewell Mashup Of Obama Singing ‘My Way’ May Leave You Misty":
And suddenly, the news comes out that Paul Anka is going to sing the song for Donald Trump:
An insider tells the site, "Paul was asked by the members of the Trump inauguration committee and he was only too happy to do it for his longtime friend. While everyone else was running scared from performing at the inauguration, Paul stood fast. He wasn't about to be intimated [sic] by anyone!"Anka will be singing special re-written he-did-it-Trump's-Way lyrics. We can only guess what changes he'll make to the lyrics. You can't start with "And now, the end is near...." even though that's a perfect line from the Trump hater's viewpoint — along with "Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew/When I bit off more than I could chew...."
And, whatever you do, wear a shirt — "That’s Just. The Fucking. Way. It Is!"
