Sally called, when she got the word,

And I looked outside,  
            
D                       
E
And I could hardly believe my eyes,  
     
E                          
This big limousine pulled slowly

Into Alice's drive.

Oh I don't know why she's leaving,

A                    
Or where she's gonna go,
  
D                          
I guess she's got her reasons
      
D                    
But I just don't wanna know
            
E               
'Cause for twenty four years

I've been living next door   to Alice.

A                                           
Twenty four years, just waitin' for a chance,
   
D                        
To tell her how I'm feeling,
      
D                   
Maybe get a second glance, 
         
E                    
Now I've gotta get used to not

Grew up together, two kids in the park,  
D                                    
E
Carved our initials deep in the bark  
E

Me and Alice.

A                 
Now she walks to the door,

A               
D
With her head held high,  
D                                    
E
Just for a moment, I caught her eye,  
E                                 
As the big limousine pulled slowly

A              
E
Out of Alice's drive.

A             
But I'm still here
     
D                                 
E
You know I've been waiting 24 years."   
        
E                         
And the big limousine disappeared.
