I was young and single
Glad that I was free
Had my whole life ahead
There was nothing stopping me.
Headed out to Vegas,
Me and all my friends
Just a buncha clowns
Running round
In a town of sin.
Ten shots later
And one double beer
Met a girl, said "I do"
in some chapel out there.

That was, the best mistake I ever made
The Lord works in mysterious ways.
Chose the wrong path all my life
but for once I did something right.
Just one look at her and I see,
Someone smiling down on me.
And I'm not too proud to say
That was the best mistake I ever made.

Tryin to start a family
was the last thing we had planned,
Till I came home from work
and she had her head in her hands.
I could see the worry
through the teardrops in her eyes,
She said, "How we gonna do this
When we're barely gettin by?"
We weren't prepared for all these changes in our world.
That all changed when the doctor said "It's a girl."

That was, the best mistake I ever made
The Lord works in mysterious ways.
Chose the wrong path all my life
but for once I did something right.
Just one look at her and I see,
Someone smiling down on me.
And I'm not too proud to say
That was the best mistake I ever made.

There's consequences to the decisions in our lives
Just cause we didn't mean to do it
That don't mean that it ain't right

That was, the best mistake I ever made
The Lord works in mysterious ways.
Chose the wrong path all my life
but for once I did something right.
Just one look at her and I see,
Someone smiling down on me.
And I'm not too proud to say
That was the best mistake I ever made.
