24 YEARS LIVING NEXT DOOR TO ALICE

This is a Smokie song which has been one of my favourites for very many years.
I had a childhood sweetheart called Alice and I tell the story of my love for Alice in Storytelling.
Here are the lyrics of this beautiful sentimental song.
Sally called when she got the word
And she said, “I suppose you’ve heard about Alice”
So I rushed to the window and I looked outside
And 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
‘Cos 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’ve 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 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
‘Cos 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’ve gotta get used to not living next door to Alice

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 dissapeared

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
‘Cos 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’ve gotta get used to not living next door to Alice

Now I’ll never get used to not living next door to Alice
