Sally called when she got the word She said, "I suppose you′ve heard 'bout Alice" So I rushed to the window and I looked outside

And I could hardly believe my eyes As a big limousine rode up into Alice′s drive Oh, I don't know 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 24 years I've been living next door to Alice 24 years just 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 We grow up together, two kids in the park Carved out 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 pulled slowly out of Alice's drive Oh, I don′t know 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 24 years I′ve been living next door to Alice 24 years just 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 Sally called back, and asked how I felt She said, "I know how to help, get over Alice" She said, "Now Alice is gone, but I′m still here You know I've been waiting 24 years" And the big limousine disappeared I don′t know 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 24 years I′ve been living next door to Alice 24 years just waitin' for a chance To tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance Now I′ll never get used to not living next door to Alice Now, I'll never get used to not living next door to Alice
