Canzone che valse nel 1982 un Grammy Award ai Police per la miglior performance Rock, Don’t Stand So Close To Me fu incisa nel 1980 con l’album Zenyattà Mondatta e ri-rilasciata nel quattro anni dopo in una nuova versione dal titolo Don’t Stand So Close To Me ’86.
Descrive una situazione di conflitto tra una studentessa ed il suo giovane professore: Sting, autore del testo, ha rivelato che il brano è puramente autobiografico, in quanto egli ha lavorato come professore d’inglese.

just like the old man
in that book by Nabakov.

Chorus

[The Police]
