In my fashion, I have been a good man, I have loved and I have lost.
Ever after I will be remembered, in my fashion, in my way.
There have been times I have seen the reaper in the bad times, and in the good,
I have bent down, I have touched the ground saying prayers and touching wood.
In my fashion, I have been a father, I have loved and been loved in return.
From the ashes, I have kept the home fires burning after all was said and done.
Now take a look at me, do I look like the kind of guy,
the kind of fool who went to school and had to stand on a stool
because he couldn't come to terms with a slide rule?
Take a look around again, is it any different now than it was then?
In my fashion I have been a good man, I have loved and I have lost
and ever after I will be remembered in my fashion, in my way.
