You are watching: As good once as i ever was

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


There is this part of the lyric that i don"t really recognize the meaning, "I ain"t as an excellent as I once was yet I"m as good once together I ever before was".

By context of the video and the whole lyric I almost guess "I can not be as good as the younger me most of the moment now, however if I could be that great at the time ns can additionally be that great this time".

Am ns correct?

The location of "once" is type of confound me. I acquire the an initial "once", however I don"t obtain the function of the second "once". An instance of sentence making use of "once" with similar duty would it is in great.
