Living next door to Alice

Song Author Nicky Chinn Lyrics by: Mike Chapman Performer: Smokie Submitted by: Anonymous
[A]Sally called and she got the word[D].  
She said I suppose you've heard, [E]about [A]Alice. [E]    
Wh[A]en I rushed to the window, and I looked outside
[D]I could hardly believe my eyes[E].  
And the big limosine pulled up, in [A]Alices [E]drive.

Oh, [A]I dont know why she's leavin,
or where she's gonna go
I [D]guess she's got her reaons
but I just dont wanna know
cause [E]for 24 years i've been
living next door to [A]Alice [E]    
[A]24 years just waiting for the chance
to [D]tell her how I feel
and maybe get a second glance
Now [E]I gotta get used to not
[E7]livin next door to [A]Alice [E]    

[A]We walked together, two kids in the park[D]    
We inscribed our initials deep in the bark
me [E]and [A]Alice [E]    
As [A]she walks to the door with her head held high
[D]just for a moment I caught her eye[E]    
As the limosine pulls out, of Alic[A]es drive[E]    

Oh, [A]I dont know why she's leavin,
or where she's gonna go
I [D]guess she's got her reaons
but I just dont wanna know
cause [E]for 24 years i've been
living next door to [A]Alice [E]    
[A]24 years just waiting for the chance
to [D]tell her how I feel
and maybe get a second glance
Now [E]I gotta get used to not
[E7]livin next door to [A]Alice [E]    

[A]And Sally called back and asked how i [D]felt
And she said I know how to help, [E]get over [A]Alice [E]    
She said, [A] now Alice is gone, but Im still here
[D]you know I've been waiting for 24 years[E]    
And the big limosine dissapear[A]ed. [E]    

Oh, [A]I dont know why she's leavin,
or where she's gonna go
I [D]guess she's got her reaons
but I just dont wanna know
cause [E]for 24 years i've been
living next door to [A]Alice [E]    
[A]24 years just waiting for the chance
to [D]tell her how I feel
and maybe get a second glance
Now [E]I gotta get used to not
[E7]livin next door to [A]Alice [E]    

Oh, [A]I dont know why she's leavin,
or where she's gonna go
I [D]guess she's got her reaons
but I just dont wanna know
cause [E]for 24 years i've been
living next door to [A]Alice [E]    
[A]24 years just waiting for the chance
to [D]tell her how I feel
and maybe get a second glance
Now [E]I gotta get used to not
[E7]livin next door to [A]Alice [E]    

Sally called and she got the word.
She said I suppose you've heard, about Alice.
When I rushed to the window, and I looked outside
I could hardly believe my eyes.
And the big limosine pulled up, in Alices drive.

Oh, I dont know why she's leavin,
or where she's gonna go
I guess she's got her reaons
but I just dont wanna know
cause for 24 years i've been
living next door to Alice
24 years just waiting for the chance
to tell her how I feel
and maybe get a second glance
Now I gotta get used to not
livin next door to Alice

We walked together, two kids in the park
We inscribed our initials deep in the bark
me and Alice
As she walks to the door with her head held high
just for a moment I caught her eye
As the limosine pulls out, of Alices drive

Oh, I dont know why she's leavin,
or where she's gonna go
I guess she's got her reaons
but I just dont wanna know
cause for 24 years i've been
living next door to Alice
24 years just waiting for the chance
to tell her how I feel
and maybe get a second glance
Now I gotta get used to not
livin next door to Alice

And 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 Im still here
you know I've been waiting for 24 years
And the big limosine dissapeared.

Oh, I dont know why she's leavin,
or where she's gonna go
I guess she's got her reaons
but I just dont wanna know
cause for 24 years i've been
living next door to Alice
24 years just waiting for the chance
to tell her how I feel
and maybe get a second glance
Now I gotta get used to not
livin next door to Alice

Oh, I dont know why she's leavin,
or where she's gonna go
I guess she's got her reaons
but I just dont wanna know
cause for 24 years i've been
living next door to Alice
24 years just waiting for the chance
to tell her how I feel
and maybe get a second glance
Now I gotta get used to not
livin next door to Alice
