OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Circle left
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

Left allemande your corner, then you dosado your own
Left allemande and weave the ring
For twenty-four years I've been waiting for a chance
Swing with your girl and promenade with romance
I've got used to not living next door to Alice
(Alice - Who the heck is Alice?)


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads you promenade and go halfway around
Walk in and pass the ocean, extend your tag
Recycle here and reverse flutter wheel
Move on along and veer to the right
Ferris wheel, centers veer to the right, veer to the left
The corner swing and promenade the ring
For twenty-four years I've been living next door to Alice
(Alice - Who the heck is Alice?)


TAG

For twenty-four years I've been living next door to Alice
(Alice - Who the heck is Alice?)

Living Next Door To Alice Lyrics ID: 1442

Sally called when she got the word
And she said "I suppose you've heard, 'bout Alice"
Well I rushed to the window, and I looked outside
But I could hardly believe my eyes
As a big limousine rode up onto 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 24 years I've been living next door to Alice
24 years just waitin' for a chance
To tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance
Now I gotta get used to not living next door to Alice

We grew up together, two kids in the park
Carved out initials deep in the bark, me an' 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 24 years I've been living next door to Alice
24 years just waitin' for a chance
To tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance
Now I gotta get used to not living next door to Alice

Then Sally called back, and asked how I felt
And she said, "I know how to help, to get over Alice"
She said, "Now Alice is gone, but I'm still here
You know, I've been waiting 24 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 wanna know
'Cos for 24 years I've been living next door to Alice
24 years just waitin' for a chance
To tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance
But 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

Lyrics by Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman.
Recorded by Smokie.
