You are watching: As good once as i ever was


I heard a tune "As an excellent As I as soon as Was" by Toby Keith.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=kp&hl=id&v=ldQrapQ4d0Y&gl=ID

There is this component of the lyric that i don"t really know the meaning, "I ain"t as great as I when was but I"m as an excellent once together I ever before was".

By paper definition of the video and the totality lyric I practically guess "I can not it is in as good as the younger me most of the moment now, yet if I might be that an excellent at the time i can also be that an excellent this time".

Am i correct?

The placement of "once" is type of confusing me. I gain the an initial "once", however I don"t obtain the duty of the 2nd "once". An instance of sentence making use of "once" v similar role would be great.
