(Ax2)Sally called when she got the word
(Dx2And she said, "I suppose you've heard... (Ex2about (A)Alice?" (E)
When I
(Ax2)rushed to the window and I looked outside
(Dx2And I could hardly believe my eyes

'Cause for
(Ex2)24 years I've been living next door to (A)Alice (E)

Now I've

We (Ax2)grew up together, two kids in the park
(Dx2We carved our initials, deep in the bark
(Ex2Me and (A)Alice (E)
Now she
(Ax2)walks through the door, with her head held high
(Dx2Just for a moment, I caught her eye
(Ex2As a big limousine pulled slowly, out of (A)Alice's drive (E)
