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 

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'll never get used to not living next door to Alice 
No, I'll never get used to not living next door to Alice
