The Police, Don’t Stand So Close To Me/Song share

Hey y’ll

Hope you guys are well and doing fine this day, August 27th, 2018.

I like this song and this was one the best hits for Police back in the day.


Here are the lyrics,,

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 to 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 he starts to cough
Just like the old man in
That book by Nabokov

Don’t stand so close to me
