VERSE
   Amaj7
Monday: Late again, today, 
Amaj7                           Dmaj7      C#m7
 He’d be in trouble though he'd say he was sorry,
Dmaj7         C#m7             Amaj7   Dmaj7
 He’d have to hurry out to the bus
    Amaj7
Tuesday: Horace was so sad,
Amaj7                       Dmaj7    C#m7
 He’d never had a girl that he could care for
Dmaj7          C#m7                    Amaj7  Dmaj7
 And if he was late once more, he’d be out oh oh


BRIDGE
A           D9    D7 A                  D9     D7
  Don't be afraid,    just knock on the door,
     A                   D9           D7
Well he just stood there mumblin' and fumblin'
A                   D9   D7
 Then a voice from above said


CHORUS
A                  A/G
"Horace Wimp, this is your life,
   D/F#            Dm/F
Go on and find yourself a wife
A                A/G
Make a stand and be a man,
    D/F#            Dm/F
And you will have a great life plan"
        A      A/G      D/F#        Dm/F
You can do it
        A      A/G      D/F#        Dm/F
Come on Horace

Wednesday: Horace met a girl,
Amaj7                       Dmaj7 C#m7
  She was small and she was very  pretty,
Dmaj7          C#m7                 Amaj7    Dmaj7
 He thought he was in love, he was afraid oh oh

     Amaj7
Thursday: Asked her for a date,
Amaj7                       Dmaj7  C#m7
 The cafe down the street tomorrow evening,
Dmaj7          C#m7                  Amaj7  Dmaj7
His head was reeling, when she said "Yes,  OK"


BRIDGE
A           D9    D7 A                  D9     D7
  Don't be afraid,    just knock on the door,
     A                   D9           D7
Well he just stood there mumblin' and fumblin'
A                   D9   D7
 Then a voice from above said

        A      A/G      D/F#        Dm/F
You can do it

Friday: Horace, this is it,
Amaj7                      Dmaj7      C#m7
 He asks the girl if maybe they could marry,
Dmaj7           C#m7           Amaj7      Dmaj7
 When she says "gladly" Horace cries "Boo Hoo"

   Amaj7
Sunday: Everybody's at the church,
Amaj7                      Dmaj7                C#m7
 When Horace rushes in and says "Now here comes my wife,
Dmaj7               C#m7          Amaj7  Dmaj7
 For the rest of my life" and she did

Best version on UG, though a couple of alts would make it more accurate.
The chord legend is confusing, (apart from for a left-handed player) the convention would usually be to start with the bottom E to the left.
The intro and coda chord sequence is:
A (x02220)- A/G (302220)- D/F# (20023x)- Dm/F (10023x)
In the choruses, the D7 to D sounds better as a D9/F# (xx4320)to D9 (xx0210).
Otherwise a good job.

Thanks a lot for your comments!
Your suggestions are dead right, too.
I'll make the changes as soon as possible.
