Alice  (A)


Sally called when she got the world

she said: I suppose you've heard    -  about Alice

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


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 twenty-four years I've been living next door to Alice

twenty-four years just waiting 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 grew up together two kids in the park

we carved our 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 a big limousine pulled slowly   Out of Alice's drive.


Sally called back and asked how I felt
and 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 for twenty-four years
and the big limousine disappeared
