Monday
Late again today
He'd be in trouble though he'd say he was sorry
He'd have to hurry out to the bus

Tuesday
Horace was so sad
He'd never had a girl that he could care for
And if he was late once more, he'd be out

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

"Horace Wimp, this is your life
Go out and find yourself a wife
Make a stand and be a man
And you will have a great life plan"

Wednesday
Horace met a girl
She was small and she was very pretty
He thought he was in love, he was afraid

Thursday
Asks her for a date
The cafe down the street tomorrow evening
His head was reeling when she said, "Yes, okay"

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

"Horace Wimp, this is your life
Go out and find yourself a wife
Make a stand and be a man
And you will have a great life plan"

Friday
Horace, this is it
He asks the girl if maybe they could marry
When she says, "Gladly" Horace cries for her

Sunday
Everybody's at the church
When Horace rushes in and says
"Now here come my wife for the rest of my life" and she did

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

"Horace Wimp, this is your wife
Go out and find yourself a life
Make a stand and be a man
And you will have a great life plan"
