Songtekst

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
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
'cause 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 got to 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
'cause 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 got to get used to not living next door to Alice.

Sally called back and asked how I felt
And she said, hey 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
'cause 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.
