| Sally called, when she got the word,
She said "I suppose you've heard
Well I rushed to the window, and I looked outside,
But I could hardly believe my eyes,
As a big limousine rolled up
into Alice's drive:
I don't why she's leaving, or where she's gonna go,
I guess she's got her reasons but I just don't wanna know,
'Cause for twenty four years I've been living next door to Alice
(Alice, who the fuck is 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
(Alice, who the fuck is 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 a big limousine pulled slowly out
of Alice's drive:
Then Sally called back, and asked how I felt,
And she said "I know how to help
to 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.......:
