You are watching: Im as good once as i ever was


I heard a tune \"As good As I as soon as Was\" through Toby Keith.

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

There is this component of the lyric that ns don\"t really know the meaning, \"I ain\"t as great as I once was however I\"m as an excellent once as I ever was\".

By paper definition of the video and the totality lyric I practically guess \"I might not be as great as the younger me many of the time now, however if I might be that good at that time i can additionally be that great this time\".

Am i correct?

The placement of \"once\" is kind of confuse me. I acquire the an initial \"once\", but I don\"t get the role of the second \"once\". An example of sentence utilizing \"once\" through similar role would be great.
