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

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 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,
Ah me and Alice
Now she walks through the door with her head held high
Just for a moment, I caught her eye
As the big limousine pulled slowly out of Alice's drive

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 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

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
You know I've been waiting for twenty-four years
And the big limousine disappeared

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 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

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