One way or another ...

My dear Bachillerato students:

One way or another I'm gonna make you remember how to say "manera" in English. Yeah! I'll do it.

For those who prefer another kind of music:

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 lived a life that's full -
I've travelled each and every highway.
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 each charted 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 I bit off more than I could chew,
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall
And did it my way.

I've loved, I've laughed and cried,
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,
And may I say, 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 - Then he has naught.
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way.

Yes, it was my way.

And for our younger students: This is the Way, a traditional song you can listen to at the British Council site

What if I like both songs? Am I a freak or what?

If you like both songs: perfect!
Have you listened to the third one?

To tell the truth, you are a little bit freak (and not because you like both songs. It's just because I know you. Freaks are cool, aren't they?)
