[ Living Next Door To Alice ]


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,
And I could hardly believe my eyes,
A big limousine pulled slowly into Alice's drive.


I don't why why she's leaving,
or where she's gonna go,
I guess she's got her reasons
but I just don't wanna know,


'Cause for twenty four years
I've been living next door to Alice.
Twenty four years, just waitin' for a chance,


To tell her how I'm feeling,
maybe get a second glance,
Now I've gotta get used to
not living next door to Alice.


We grew up together, two kids in the park
Carved our initials deep in the bark....
Me and Alice.


Now she walks to the door with her head held high,
And just for a moment, I caught her eye,
As the big limousine pulled slowly out of Alice's drive.


Then Sally called back, and 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.
And you know I've been waiting twenty four years....."
And the big limousine disappeared...


But I'll never get used to not living next door to Alice.
No, I'll never get used to not living next door to Alice...
