SALLY CALLED, JUST GOT THE WORD SHE SAID, I SUPPOSE YOU HEARD ´BOUT ALICE WELL I RUSHED TO THE WINDOW AND I LOOKED OUTSIDE AND I COULD HARDLY BELIEVE MY EYES IT´S A BIG LIMOSINE MOVED UP INTO ALICE´S DRIVE CHORUS OH I DON´T KNOW WHY SHE´S LEAVING OR SHE´S GONNA GO I GUESS SHE´S GOT REASONS BUT I JUST DON´T WANT TO KNOW CAUSE FOR 24 YEARS I´VE BEEN LIVING NEXT DOOR TO ALICE 24 YEARS JUST WAITING FOR A CHANCE TO TELL HER HOW I FEEL IT AND MAYBE GET A SECOND CHANCE NOW I GOT TO GET USED TO NOT LIVING NEXT DOOR TO ALICE GREW UP TOGETHER, TWO KIDS IN THE PARK GOT OUR INITIALS DEEP IN THE BARK ME´N AND ALICE NOW SHE WALKS THROUGH THE DOOR WITH HER HEAD HELD HIGH AND JUST FOR A MOMENT I CAUGHT HER EYE AS THE BIG LIMOSINE PULLED SLOWLY OUT OF ALICE´S DRIVE CHORUS AND SALLY CALLED BACK, AND ASKED HOW I FELT SHE SAID, I KNOW, HOW TO HELP GET OVER ALICE SHE SAID: NOW ALICE IS GONE, BUT I´M STILL HERE KNOW I´VE BEEN WAITING FOR 24 YEARS THAN THE BIG LIMOSINE DISAPEARED
