Don't Stand so Close to Me '86 The Police / Singles Young teacher the subject Of schoolgirl fantasy She wants him so badly Knows what she wants to be Inside her there's longing This girl's an open page Book marking she's so close now This girl is half his age Don't stand so close to me Her friends are so jealous You know how bad girls get Sometimes it's not so easy To be the teacher's pet Temptation, frustration So bad it makes him cry Wet bus stop, she's waiting His car is warm and dry Don't stand so close to me Loose talk in the classroom To hurt they try and try Strong words in the staffroom The accusations fly It's no use He sees her He starts to shake and cough Just like the old man in That famous book by Nabakov Don't stand so close to me
