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

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
