Living Next Door to Alice Lyrics

Sally called when she got the word

She said: "I suppose you've heard -

About Alice"

Well I rushed to the window

And I looked outside

But I could hardly believe my eyes -

As a big limousine rolled up

Into Alice's drive

Oh I don't know why she's leaving

Or where she's gonna go

I guess she's got her reasons

But I just don't want to know

'Cos for twenty-four years

I've been living next door to Alice

Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance

To tell her how I'm feeling maybe get a second glance

Now I've got to get used to not living next door to Alice

Grew up together

Two kids in the park

Carved our initials

Deep in the bark

Me and Alice

Now she walks through the door

With her head held high

Just for a moment I caught her eye

As a big limousine pulled slowly

Out of Alice's drive

Oh I don't know why she's leaving

Or where she's gonna go

I guess she's got her reasons

But I just don't want to know

'Cos for twenty-four years

I've been living next door to Alice

Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance

To tell her how I'm feeling maybe get a second glance

Now I gotta get used to not living next door to Alice

Sally called back asked how I felt

She said: "I know how to help -

Get over Alice"

She said: "Now Alice is gone

But I'm still here

You know I've been waiting

For twenty-four years "

And the big limousine disappeared

I don't know why she's leaving

Or where she's gonna go

I guess she's got her reasons

But I just don't want to know

'Cos for twenty-four years

I've been living next door to Alice

Twenty-four years just waiting for a chance

To tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance

But I'll never get used to not living next door to Alice

Now I'll never get used to not living next door to Alice
