"Don't Stand So Close To Me '86" as written by and Gordon Matthew Sumner....
Young teacher the subject
Of schoolgirl fantasy
She wants him so badly
Knows what she wants to be
Inside her there's no room
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 he starts to cough
Just like the old man in
That famous book by Nabakov

Don't stand so close to me

    General Commentwhat??!?!?!?! this song has an amazing feel to it... just the beginning is messed up with the whacked out drum solo and all... their drummer like broke his neck so he couldn't drum and he quickly learned to program a little drum machine... the hi-hat sounds absolutely AMAZING, but then Copeland always had a knack for a good sounding bass drum/hi-hat rhythm...

    General CommentI didn't even like the original all that much. "Don't Stand..." and "Dedoodoo dedadada" (or whatever the hell it's called) are the weakest tracks on the Zenyatta Mondatta album and are the only two that I skip through when listening to that album.

    I don't really like the hits of the Police, I've always liked their non-single album tracks and rarities from the box set more. Songs like "Driven to Tears", "Lowlife", "Visions of the Night", "Next To You", "Too Much Information", "When the World is...", "Omegaman", "Canary in a Coal Mine", etc... are far superior to their hits, imo.

    General CommentI'm just listening to this remake...and it has nothing from Police's ...let's call it charm... in fact, the best thing about this song it that Sting gives an enormly deviant smile in the videoclip :-P it makes me laugh everytime, that smirk always gets me, try and watch it
