She Does it Her Way (or ‘In the Wee Small Hours of Illusion’)

And now, the end is near,

And so I say, Its just beginning.

The pundits had their fun,

But were not done until Im winning,

The race goes to the strong,

To those who live the Do or die way,

So no, dont pack it in,

I count em My Way.

The delegates are his,

But theres a diffrent way to score them,

To put me in the lead,

Ive just decreed that well ignore them,

Well say it evry day

Its just a tiny little lie way

To put me back on top,

I count em My Way.

Yes, there were times

When some would shout

That I should quit, I should drop out,

I never flinched, I never caved,

I only slightly misbehaved,

I rocked their boats,

Ive got the votes:

I count em My Way.

Each day, I soldier on,

I seize upon some new statistic,

The experts all say No,

But theyre just so


The rules are made for chumps,

For those who play that same old guy way,

The numbers make it clear,

I count em My Way.

Im here, Ill stand and fight

Until they come to a decision,

My math is all my own,

Im really good at long division,

Im firm, Im standing tall,

In a Reject me and Ill cry way,

Im master of my fate,

I count em My Way.

For what is a plan?

What is it worth?

To grab the greatest job on earth,

Ill say the things that keep me in,

Ill say whatever helps me win,

The record shows

Thats how it goes:

I count em My Way!
