Nancy Sinatra responded to the prospect of Donald and Melania Trump dancing at the inaugural ball to her father Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” by reminding the president-elect about the song’s iconic lyrics.

Singer Paul Anka, who wrote the 1969 song for Mr. Sinatra, revealed last week that he had to cancel his performance of the song at the inaugural ball because of a scheduling conflict. He said he had altered some of the lyrics to fit Mr. Trump and he was supposed to sing it as the new president and first lady had their first dance.

Ms. Sinatra, known for her hits “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’” and “Bang Bang,” was asked by a fan on Twitter what she thought of the idea of the first couple dancing to her father’s song.

“Just remember the first line of the song,” the 76-year-old responded.

The first line of “My Way” begins, “And now, the end is near.”

Ms. Sinatra has made her feelings toward Mr. Trump known in the past. Just two weeks ago she said her father never would have supported the president-elect.

“My dad didn’t hate anybody but he would never support a bigot,” she tweeted to her 123,000 followers.
