"When I Kissed The Teacher" as written by Benny Goran Bror Andersson and Bjoern K. Ulvaeus....
Everybody screamed when I kissed the teacher
And they must have thought they dreamed when I kissed the teacher
All my friends at school
They had never seen the teacher blush, he looked like a fool
Nearly petrified 'cause he was taken by surprise
When I kissed the teacher
Couldn't quite believe his eyes, when I kissed the teacher
My whole class went wild
As I held my breath, the world stood still, but then he just smiled
I was in the seventh heaven when I kissed the teacher

One of these days
Gonna tell him I dream of him every night
One of these days
Gonna show him I care, gonna teach him a lesson alright

I was in a trance when I kissed the teacher
Suddenly I took the chance when I kissed the teacher
Leaning over me, he was trying to explain the laws of geometry
And I couldn't help it, I just had to kiss the teacher

One of these days
Gonna tell him I dream of him every night
One of these days
Gonna show him I care, gonna teach him a lesson alright

What a crazy day, when I kissed the teacher
All my sense had flown away when I kissed the teacher
My whole class went wild
As I held my breath, the world stood still, but then he just smiled
I was in the seventh heaven when I kissed the teacher
(I want to hug, hug, hug him)
When I kissed the teacher
(I want to hug, hug him)
When I kissed the teacher
(I want to hug, hug, hug him)
When I kissed the teacher
(I want to hug, hug him)
When I kissed the teacher
(I want to hug, hug, hug him)

    General CommentA simple song about a teenage girl who has a crush on her maths teacher. Shed love to become his lover and imagines herself as a woman.

    General CommentI don't necessarily think she wants to be a women. She wants to kiss him, she likes him. I don't think this song is about sex or anything like that, I totally sympathise with wanting to kiss the teacher, I've felt the same way before! ahaha

    General CommentVery sweet song, I even made a little flash video out of it if anyone cares: deviantart.com/deviation/19311064/
    I agree it's just about wanting to kiss your teacher, in fact it's narrating how she did it and how much she liked it. Gotta love the theme!

    General CommentThis song will hit home for many people. There can't be many people who haven't had a crush on a teacher (although I don't think I ever have).

    General CommentThis song has often been associated to communist ideas and how it clashed with the capitalist west during the cold war, however I have personally connected this song with god, core morality and theism too.

    This song also makes a strong connection to band member Donald Duck, who was fighting against scizophrenia at this point. It references his constant war with the mental illness.

    In conclusion, I strongly feel that this song is strong proof of the band's underlying authoritarian mentality and fascist views.
