May be sung to the tune of: As Good As I Once Was
Owner of the original: Toby Keith
Written on: Fall 2006



She said “Thanks for answering my call”
I said “It’s the least I can do”
She said “it’ll all go down
before the next day is through
And you’ve been staring at that gun
Twice as long as you looked at me
I want to make love to you
but I ain’t selling, this one’s for free”
I said, “Nandi,

I ain’t as good as I once was,
And the years have got me down
and it’s been some time, since a woman so fine
Took ahold of my plow
But if you need some love tonight
then I might have just enough
I ain't as good as I once was
but I was good once, as I ever was”

I had some run-ins with my crewman Jayne
not sure that I’d call him friend
as a fighter he’s great, but he wouldn’t hesitate
if he got paid to turn us in
We were in a real tight spot
And he didn’t like my plan
I said “Do you want to run this ship?
Well, Jayne, you know you can’t”
I said, “Jayne,

I ain’t as good as I once was
There’s a lot that I can’t do
but if you wanna get paid, then you do what I say
Long’s you’re on my crew
And if you want to fight tonight
Well I just might call your bluff
I aint as good as i once was
but I was good once, as I ever was”

I used to be hell on wheels
back when I was a younger man
now my body says, "You cant do this boy"
but my pride says, "Oh, yes you can"


I ain’t as good as I once was
even I got to say
but I still go and get tight, start up a fight
on Unification day

If the Alliance wants to mess with me
Well I’m ready to play rough
I ain't as good as I once was
but i was good once,as i ever was
maybe not be good as I once was
but i'm as good once,as i ever was
