Dont Stand So Close To Me Lyrics

Artist: The Police
Album: Dont Stand So Close To Me

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, whe'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 famous book by Nabakov

Don't stand so close to me

The word famous at the end isnt in the song.
by Lukas on 5/23/2008 7:33am
Yep that word famous is not in the song.Also wat a great song remninds me of myself so much im a teahcer and only 23.
by George on 5/27/2008 5:40am
You're right about 'famous'. I'm using the lyric as an example of the underestimated strength of song lyrics for my "Writers Group" today.
The others I like are The Pet Shop Boys "When I left,I left from the station with a rucksack and much trepidation", and Gilbert O'Sullivan's "As I drink my Napoleon Shandy......look it up!
by Mikhail on 6/5/2008 10:08am
the song also says "he starts to shake and cough", not "He starts to shake he starts to cough." As to the the "famous" it doesn't say it but it is a famous book regardless "Lolita" by vladimir nabokov, and thats how his name is spelt nabokov not nabakov. Always good to see historical refferences in classic rock, for instance "we didn't start the fire" by billy joel.

in the '86 version the word famous is in the song
by Holly on 6/14/2008 9:08pm
This song reminds me of me in more ways then one haha. Love this song, thanks for the lyrics.
by Mike on 6/22/2008 5:15pm
In the 1986 version the word famous is in the song.

Love This Song Reminds Me Of Stuf Lol x
by hikari on 7/20/2008 11:49am
Ah..this song makes me think of an idea for a movie that I had. Except the girl isn't half his age. And he's a college student who, despite being 18, is so smart he's about to graduate. And he's training to be a teacher so he helps out with her class and she gradually falls in love with him. ANd her "friends" that are jealous is her archrival Lana. But despite the differences it stil reminds me.

wow these r wrong
by Echo on 7/25/2008 12:28pm
They are pretty accurate actually. Except like one word.
by IZZY on 7/26/2008 6:27pm
The word Famous is in the song but only in the 86 version.
by Blargh on 9/8/2008 3:45pm
These lyrics aren't what I expected. They're too inaccurate. Just listened to the song bout an hour ago. It's one of my favorites.
by Kaylee on 9/21/2008 8:54pm
Some of these lyrics are wrong, but is this song about a relastionship between a teacher and a student?
by Angie on 10/6/2008 7:36pm
Love Sting. He is my all time favorite. beautiful song and lyrics.
nobody can't beat Sting. love him.
by Joe on 10/13/2008 9:02pm
Hey guys, these lyrics are exactly accurate if you listening to the 1986 version of the song, different tempo, a little slower, different lyrics that the first release.
by starfish on 10/18/2008 2:49pm
this is one of the most realistic songs ive ever heard...nice!!
by umm on 12/7/2008 11:59pm
My friends student teacher used to hit on her all the time and sing this song to her!!!!!! BAH!! ew.
by Segal on 2/13/2009 1:50pm
Amazing song. though, its Nabokov, not Nabakov...
by La Policia on 2/23/2009 1:36pm
I absoutly love this song!!!! The tune and the words are amazing!!!
by Great song great lyrics Sting rules on 3/6/2009 4:54pm

Please dont stand so close to me!
by Michelle Z on 3/9/2009 6:54pm
This song soooo reminds me of my principal 20 years ago. I wonder if he's still yummy!!
by Nabakov Nabokov on 3/13/2009 4:46am
Doesn't matter how the guy spelt his name. In the song (original Police version) Sting clearly pronounces it NAB-A-KOV
by TRDK on 3/18/2009 5:46pm
I wnat to be the guy:). No but really great song awsome lyrics. Deep yet catchy. Sting does a great job of making music. If any body wants to learn anymore songs try brass monkey by the besti boys stupid by funny
by Marissa on 3/29/2009 5:45pm
the word famous is at the end of the '86 version.
by Doug on 4/3/2009 8:48am
How many times are people going to say that the word famous is in the 86 version? Dang, we get it already!
by pew on 6/24/2009 7:33am
you dumbs! Are RUSH rules! The best band in the world! You sting/k!
by Donny on 8/31/2009 12:16pm
It's funny how it's the teachers who get fired even though the schoolgirls obviously keep having a crack.
by loubee on 11/13/2009 11:37am
des t strike anyone strange tht this song is so strongly worded and sting used to be a teacher?
by someone who loves there teacher. on 11/16/2009 6:34pm
This is my song.
by Mellie on 11/18/2009 11:15pm
I'm sure his time as a teacher partially inspired the song, but he denies it being autobiographical.

Anyway, great song, absolutely love it. Lyrics are slightly off, but no big.
by Jojo on 11/26/2009 1:11am
I was Googling random subjects for song lyrics and came across this. I didn't remember it till I was reading the lyrics then I'm like "OMG GLEE!!!!"
I love Glee. Whose with me? (:
by Lola on 12/10/2009 11:57pm
I'm with you Jojo! Glee is great! and this song is great! :-)
by Gigi on 12/31/2009 10:53am
Yup yup, this is one of the best songs ever. Hmm, yeah there are a lot of mistakes in these lyrics ):
by doug on 2/26/2010 11:57am
dont't you guys have anything better to do
by Jenny on 3/9/2010 6:35pm
This song reminds me of me and my teacher. It's actually pretty freaky how accurate...weird.
by benny on 5/6/2010 12:43am

by saasha on 5/9/2010 2:01am

i like this song so much i peed my pants
by Rob on 7/1/2010 10:37pm
"my name is": Good to know. Thanks for sharing.
by happyfeet on 11/6/2010 11:09pm
"my name is": get your bladder checked out..

anyway, i love this song, but has anyone else noticed that sting sings alot about obsession? for example, " Every breath you take" is about an obsessed stalker and althought the school teacher isnt " obsessed here, the school girl is ..
by john on 11/22/2010 11:13pm
I used to wonder about the Navokov part of song. Now I know.

Also I used to like a teacher and was convinced she like me in the same way. She did not it was just a fantasy. Ha Ha
by JP on 1/11/2011 5:41pm
Reminds me of an English teacher I used to have...everyone had a crush on him (including some of the guys...or so i suspected) until about a month into the of those people I hope I can run into after i make a name for myself in a couple of years and get together with then :) awesome song! brings back a lot of hopeful memories!
by jizz in my pants on 1/27/2011 6:35am
yo fools! gotta love this song! some sick shite mannn
by kate :p on 4/12/2011 7:22pm
Haha! this makes me think of pretty little liars, love the song
by meh on 6/13/2011 9:39am
The lyric differences - "famous", "he starts to shake he starts to cough" are from the '86 version.
by nick on 8/11/2011 8:32am
basically what a ton of other people already said...the word "famous" isnt in the song (at least not in most versions--@m might be right im not sure) and its "he starts to shake and cough" not "he starts to shake he starts to cough".

by SchoolGal on 8/21/2011 1:18am
i thought it would be hilarious to sing this for a school talent show and dedicate it to one of the hot new teachers. The look on his face was priceless.
by ThatGuy on 9/17/2011 2:19pm
In the 1986 re-release version, the word "Famous" is added. Also, in this version, "He starts to shake he starts to cough" is clearly spoken. People must be well versed on subjects before commenting.
by TheMadOne on 1/3/2012 4:26am
i have been a happier oerson now i have downloaded this song i cant function properly without listening to it
by Yannick on 4/2/2012 1:42am
These are the lyrics of the '86 version of this song,that's why there are differences...And thank you to Police to make me discover Nabokov!
by matt on 9/23/2012 1:50am
happy feet ......sorry the every breath u take isnt about obsession its really about him watching his kids grow up and him watching that
by Lyndsay on 1/12/2014 1:47am
This songs is freaking suspenseful, its also very dramatic.
by addy on 3/31/2014 6:33pm
Love this song
by Analking123 on 10/15/2016 9:24pm
