Living Next Door to Alice - Wikipedia
Originally released by the Australian vocal harmony trio New World in ,  the song charted at No. The song later became a worldwide hit for British band Smokie. The song is about a young man's long-standing unrequited love toward the girl next door and his neighbour of 24 years, Alice. The protagonist had seen a limousine parked at Alice's home, learning through mutual friend Sally that she is moving away, and begins to reflect on childhood memories and his friendship with Alice, and becomes heartbroken as he sees Alice get inside the limousine. As he watches the car drive out of sight, the protagonist feels sadness over Alice leaving without explanation, and regrets that, in 24 years, he never took the opportunity to express his feelings for her.
