   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


A           D7       A                  D7       
  Don't be afraid,    just knock on the door,
     A                   D7             
Well he just stood there mumblin' and fumblin'
A                   D7     
 Then a voice from above said
A                  A7
"Horace Wimp, this is your life,
   D               Dm 
Go on and find yourself a wife
A                A7
Make a stand and be a man,
    D               Dm 
And you will have a great life plan"
        A      A7   D    Dm
You can do it
        A      A7   D    Dm
Come on Horace


      Amaj7
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"


A           D7       A                  D7       
  Don't be afraid,    just knock on the door,
     A                   D7             
Well he just stood there mumblin' and fumblin'
A                   D7     
 Then a voice from above said
A                  A7
"Horace Wimp, this is your life,
   D               Dm 
Go on and find yourself a wife
A                A7
Make a stand and be a man,
    D               Dm 
And you will have a great life plan"
        A      A7  D   Dm 
You can do it
        A      A7  D   Dm 
Come on Horace


   Amaj7
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

A           D7       A                  D7       
  Don't be afraid,    just knock on the door,
     A                   D7             
Well he just stood there mumblin' and fumblin'
A                   D7     
 Then a voice from above  said
A                  A7
"Horace Wimp, this is your wife,
   D                Dm 
Go on and find yourself a life
A                A7
Make a stand and be a man,
    D                Dm 
And you will have a great life plan"
        A      A7  D   Dm 
You can do it
        A      A7  D   Dm 
Come on Horace
