Subject: looking for lyrics: next door to alice

I am trying to find the lyrics as well as the artist for a certain song. The only portion of the lyrics that I know from it are "...24 years of livin' next door to Alice." At this point, when sung in a pub, the crowd will typically respond with, "Alice - Who the f@#! is Alice?"

If you know the song lyrics, the artist, or an album on which the song is included, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you.

Hi,

It was originally done in the 70's by a band called "Smokie"...... check out the International lyrics server it's probably there. The version you're talking about is a few years old but it was basically the original with that line shouted in the appropriate places.

Slainte

The version of 'Living next door....with the expletives' is done by Roy'Chubby'Brown and Smokie.He is a funny ,but very,very,rude comedian.

love and happiness

LIVING NEXT DOOR TO ALICE
Mike Chapman, Nicky Chinn

Sally called, said she got the word
She said "I suppose you heard
About Alice"
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.

Chorus

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 . . . .

Chorus

(with apologies to Smokie)
