The Diary Of Horace Wimp
Jeff Lynne
Late again, today,
He'd be in trouble though he'd say he was sorry,
He'd have to hurry out to the bus.

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."

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

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


Horace, this is it,
He asks the girl if maybe they could marry,
When she says "gladly." Horace cries.

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.
