LIVING NEXT DOOR TO ALICE
Mike Chapman, Nicky Chinn
Sally called, said she got the word
She said "I suppose you heard
I rushed to the window and looked outside
I could hardly believe my eyes
As a big limousine pulled in to Alice's drive.
CHORUS: I don't know why she's leaving or where she's going to go
I guess she's got her reasons but I just don't want to know
Now I've gotta get used to not living next door to Alice.
(Alice, who .........)
We grew up together, two kids in the park
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 the big limousine pulls slowly out of Alice's drive.
Sally called back, said she knew how I felt
She said "I know how to help
Get over Alice"
She said "Alice is gone but I'm still here
I've been waiting 24 years. . ."
As the big limousine . . . . disappears . . . .
