Smokie Next Door To Alice Lyrics

Sally called - when she got the word
She said "I suppose you've heard ------ about Alice"
Well I rushed to the window - and I looked outside - and I could hardly believe my eyes
This big limousine pulled slowly - 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 want to know
'Cause for twenty four years I've been living next door to 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

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 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 want to know
'Cause for twenty four years I've been living next door to 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

Sally called back - and asked how I felt
She said "I know how to help ------you 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

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 want to know
'Cause for twenty four years I've been living next door to 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
No, I'll never get used to not living next door to Alice
