"Wrapped Around Your Finger" as written by and Gordon Matthew Sumner....
You consider me the young apprentice
Caught between the Scylla and Charibdes
Hypnotized by you if I should linger
Staring at the ring around your finger

I have only come here seeking knowledge
Things they would not teach me of in college
I can see the destiny you sold turned into a shining band of gold

I'll be wrapped around your finger
I'll be wrapped around your finger
Mephistopheles is not your name
I know what you're up to just the same
I will listen hard to your tuition
You will see it come to its fruition
I'll be wrapped around your finger
I'll be wrapped around your finger

Devil and the deep blue sea behind me
Vanish in the air you'll never find me
I will turn your face to alabaster
When you'll find your servant is your master

You'll be wrapped around my finger
You'll be wrapped around my finger
You'll be wrapped around my finger

    General Commentwould not agree this is a love song.

    master and student, belive this is all about, in some company, precisly shipping or more over on board of some vessel. At first, they both have theoretical knowledge, but sudent need practical knowledge, and after some time his master have to chose btw 2 sudents / sailors, let's say for 1.officer on board. After choice sudent is satisfied for quite short time, and along time pass by he seek more knowledge / distances / lands and he's in tihgt relation with his superior / master. After some time his intuition become masters intution (master - capitan on ship). For gratitude he will turn his face to alabaster (statue) and keep educate for generations of knowledge...

    As Sting is englishman, this explanation looks to me colser than love song.
    anybody maybe agree...
