Alice had never felt the touch,
Of the man she wanted oh, so much,
She despised anyone who into love they fell,
And walking along with her narrow mind,
Saw a young couple sweetly entwined,
Just rolled her eyes and wished they’d go to hell.
And as the young lovers hugged,
Alice shrugged.

One rain swept night she was all alone,
Trying to make her way back home,
The late shift never suited her at all.
And coming up the other way,
A man who’d been drinking all day,
Was beaten and pushed against a rain soaked wall.
And as the drunkard was mugged,
Alice shrugged.

Alice never felt the gentle press,
Of a friend or lovers’ sweet caress,
Just lived her life in loneliness,
And never tasted happiness.

Well, in a dream she had one night,
Alice was given a hell of a fright,
As children formed a patient, orderly line,
The doctor said they needed rest,
He just had to carry out one small test,
And injected them through a drip of saline.
And as the children were drugged,
Alice shrugged.

Alice never felt the gentle press,
Of a friend or lovers’ sweet caress,
Just lived her life in loneliness,
And never tasted happiness.

When Alice in her coffin lay,
Her eyes had seen her final day,
Young Alice, well, she had never been married.
Though daily she prayed to God above,
But never did she find true love,
And into church her coffin was carried.
And as the bell-rope was tugged,
Alice shrugged.

Alice never felt the gentle press,
Of a friend or lovers’ sweet caress,
Just lived her life in loneliness,
And never tasted happiness.

Alice never felt the gentle press,
Of a friend or lovers’ sweet caress,
Just lived her life in loneliness,
And never tasted happiness.

As the young lovers hugged,
And as the drunkard was mugged,
And as the children were drugged,
And as the bell-rope was tugged,
Alice shrugged.
