Living next door to Alice - Smokie

 

Strophe) 

Sally called and she got the word 

She said I suppose you´re heard, about Alice 

When I rushed to the window, and I looked outside 

I could hardly believe my eyes 

And the big limousine pulled up, in Alices drive 

 

Refrain) 

Oh, I don´t know why she´s leaving, ot where she´s gonna go 

I guess she´s got her reasons but I just don´t wanna know 

Cause for 24 years I´ve been living next doot to Alice 

24 years just waitiing fot the chance 

To tell her how I feel and maybe get s second glance 

Not I gotta get used to not living next door to Alice 

 

 

Strophe) 

We walked together, two kids in the park 

We inscribed 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 pulls slowly, out of Alices drive 

 

Refrain) 

Oh, I don´t know why she´s leaving, ot where she´s gonna go 

I guess she´s got her reasons but I just don´t wanna know 

Cause for 24 years I´ve been living next doot to Alice 

24 years just waitiing fot the chance 

To tell her how I feel and maybe get s second glance 

Not I gotta get used to not living next door to Alice 

 

Strophe) 

And Sally called back and asked hot 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 the big limousine disappeared....

 

Refrain) 

Oh, I don´t know why she´s leaving, ot where she´s gonna go 

I guess she´s got her reasons but I just don´t wanna know 

Cause for 24 years I´ve been living next doot to Alice 

24 years just waitiing fot the chance 

To tell her how I feel and maybe get s second glance 

Not I gotta get used to not living next door to Alice 

 

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