In the song "My way" performed by Frank Sinatra, what does mean "but then again"?

Please help!!

I'm translating it to spanish and, who wants the translation is squared-mind, he wants everything word by word, that's not possible and I need to know very well, what this phrase means, to do a good job.

Thanks in advance!!

    "Regrets, Ive had a few;

    But then again, too few to mention."

    what he's saying is

    Regrets, I've had a few,

    but... now that I think about it, I really don't regret as much as I thought i did.

    "But then again" as in "instead" or "actually" because he's saying that he's had so few regret that its like not having any at all. So my best way of putting it is "actually" or "come to think of it". I think you ca even just put "but" which would sound better.

    Regrets, Ive had a few;

    But after thinking about it, too few to mention.

    Hope that helped

  • It basically his way of saying that he's had some regrets in his life but they were not often and really insignifigant. In other words, not worth mentioning.
