Smokie, Living Next Door to Alice

Sally called when she got the word,
She said, "I suppose you've heard about Alice."
When I rushed to the window, and I looked outside,
And 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 feel,
And 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,
We 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 feel,
And maybe get a second glance...
Now, I've gotta get used to not living next door to Alice.

And Sally called back, and asked how I felt,
And she said, "I know how to help get over Alice."
She said, "Now, Alice's gone but I'm still here,
You know, I've been waiting for twenty-four years..."
And a 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.

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