Recording sessions
1965 September 30-October 1: New York with Orace Hott orchestra
For myself
I must learn for myself
Not from what someone else
Has said or done

And so I live my life
From day to day
And try to smile
While feeling my way
Just like a child

For myself
I must learn for myself
The future that someone else
May say will come
May never be

So whatever destiny
Holds for me
Let me see
For myself
