She said I've seen YOU in here before
I said I've been here a time or two
She said Hello my name is Bobby Joe
Meet my twin sister Betty Lou
AND We're both feelin' kinda wild tonight
You're the only cowboy in this place
AND if you're up for a rodeo
I'll put a big Texas smile on your face

AND I said girls

I ain't as good as I once was
I've got a few years on me now
But there was a time, back in my prime
When I could really lay it down
if you need some love tonight
Then I might have just enough
I ain't as good as I once was
But I'm as good once as I ever was

I still hang out with my best friend Dave
I've known him since we were kids AT school
Last night he had a few shots
Got in a tight spot
Hustlin' a game of pool
With a couple of redneck boys
One Great big bad biker man
I heard David yell across the room
Hey buddy how 'bout a helpin' hand

I said Dave

I ain't as good as I once was
My how the years have flown
But there was a time, back in my prime
When I could really hold my own
If you wanna fight tonight
Guess those boys don't look all that tough
I ain't as good as I once was
But I'm as 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 can't do this boy
But my pride says oh yes you can

I ain't as good as I once was
That's just the cold hard truth
I still throw a few back
Talk a little smack
When I'm feelin' bulletproof
So don't double dog dare me now
'Cause I'd have to call your bluff
I ain't as good as I once was
But I'm as good once as I ever was

MAY NOT BE GOOD as I once was
But I'm as good once as I ever was
