Sally called, when she got the word.
She said, I suppose you've heard___ about Alice___
Well I rushed to the window, well 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 wanna know,
'Cause for twentyfour years I've been living next door to Alice___
Twentyfour years just waiting for the 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.
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 twentyfour years___
And then the big limousine disappeared.
Now I'll never get used to not living next door to Alice___
