Living Next Door to Alice (3:38)

Cover of The Definitive 70's

From The Definitive 70's and 214 other releases

This song is a 1976 top ten hit for the UK Band Smokie. It is often thought to be called “Who the Fuck is Alice” or “Alice! Who the Fuck is Alice?” or some variation of such. The band noticed that while touring in Ireland, that whenever they sang the main line “For 24 years/I’ve been living next door to Alice” the audience would shout “Who the fuck is Alice?”. The resident DJ in Dutch café Gompie first came up with this phrase and, after a local record producer had noted its popularity and organized a recording, had a number 17-hit with Alice, Who the Fuck is Alice! in the United Kingdom and in the Netherlands reaching #1. Smokie decided to cover the Gompie-version of their own song and thought that comedian Roy Chubby Brown was the ideal man for the job, with Barton singing the song vocals and Brown providing the additional sworn response. The appropriate title for this track by Smokie is: Who The F**k Is Alice (Living Next Door To Alice).

Sally called when she got the word
And she said, "I suppose you've heard about Alice"
Well I rushed to the window and I looked outside
And I could hardly believe my eyes
