Living Next Door to Alice
Smokie Lyrics


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
This big limousine pulled slowly 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 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

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
Just for a moment, I caught her eye
As the 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 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

Sally called back, and asked how I felt
She said "I know how to help, you get over Alice"
She said "Now Alice is gone, but I'm still here
You know I've been waiting 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 waitin' for a chance
To tell her how I'm feeling, maybe get a second glance
Now 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

… Sally called when she got the word
And 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
'Cause for 24 years
I've been living next door to Alice
… 24 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 24 years
I've been living next door to Alice
… 24 years just waiting for a chance
To tell her how I feel, and maybe get a second glance
Now I 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 is gone, but I'm still here"
You know I've been waiting for 24 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
'Cause for 24 years
I've been living next door to Alice
… 24 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

Sally called when she got the word
And 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
'Cause for 24 years
I've been living next door to Alice
24 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 24 years
I've been living next door to Alice
24 years just waiting for a chance
To tell her how I feel, and maybe get a second glance
Now I 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 is gone, but I'm still here"
You know I've been waiting for 24 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
'Cause for 24 years
I've been living next door to Alice
24 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

I had never heard this song until I went by my middle name, Alice, for a few months, SO MANY people kept bringing up this song, and asking "Who the F is Alice?" And now I love the song.

If only I had someone love me like the singer loves Alice, or Sally loved the singer...
