I made a mistake Lord
I thought I was wrong
I said take it and git
She said got it and gone
So I'm writing it all down
In this stupid ol' song
I made a mistake Lord
I thought I was wrong

I'm a lot like ol' Ripley
On "Believe It Or Not"
I told a big lie Lord
And then I forgot
I thought I was Jesus
And believe me I'm not
I thought I was right
And I was wrong by a lot
I feel a little like Elvis
When he was alone
I made another mistake Lord
I thought I was wrong

I made a mistake Lord
And it's all on me
I wouldn't admit it
But it's easy to see
So if anyone's praying
A request I would make
Is to mention my name 'cause
I made a mistake

I'm a lot like ol' Ripley
On "Believe It Or Not"
I told a big lie Lord
And then I forgot
I thought I was Jesus
And believe me I'm not
I thought I was right
And I was wrong by a lot
I feel a little like Elvis
When he was alone
I made another mistake Lord
I thought I was wrong
I made another mistake Lord
I thought I was wrong
