"Living Next Door to Alice" as written by Michael Donald Chapman and Nicholas Barry Chinn....
Sally called, when she got the word
She said "I suppose you've heard, yeah, about Alice"
Well, I rushed to the window, and I looked outside
I could hardly believe my eyes
As the big limousine pulled slowly into Alice's drive

Well, I don't why why she's leaving, where she's gonna go
I guess she's got her reasons, but I just don't wanna know
For twenty-four years I've been living next door to Alice (Alice, who the heck 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

We grew up together, two kids in the park
Carved our initials deep in the bark
Yeah, me and Alice
Now she walks to the door with her head held high
And just for a moment, I caught her eye
As the big limousine pulled slowly out of Alice's drive

Well, I don't why she's leaving, where she's gonna go
I guess she's got her reasons, but I just don't wanna know
For twenty-four years I've been living next door to Alice (Alice, who the heck is Alice)

Twenty-four-years 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

Sally called back, and asked how I felt
She said "I know how to help, yeah, get over Alice"
She said "now, Alice is gone, but I'm still here
And you know I've been waiting twenty-four years"
As the big limousine disappeared

I, I don't why why she's leaving, or where she's gonna go
I guess she's got her reasons, but I just don't wanna know
For twenty-four years I've been living next door to Alice (Alice, who the heck is Alice)

Twenty-four years, waitin' for a chance
To tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance
Now I gotta get used to not living next door to Alice

Don't think I'll ever get used to not living next door to Alice
