Young Girl Don’t Stand So Close To Me

If you’re not a Glee Fan, this won’t mean much to you and you should go find something else to read.  I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a Glee fan, if you are too… Well, read on!

I’m sitting here, doing random non-blogging things and Don’t Stand So Close To Me by The Police comes on the trusty ole iPhone.  Good song.  I’ve liked it for years.

I’m splitting my attention about 70/30 between the task at hand and enjoying the music.  The 30% is tapping my booted toes and bopping my head along with the music.

Suddenly, the 70% is completely distracted from the task at hand with the realization that some portion of the brain (not sure if it’s the 70 or the 30) is looking for lyrics that aren’t there.  Something is wrong.  The lyrics are supposed to be different…

Young teacher, the subject of school girl fantacy
She wants him, so badly, knows what she wants to be
With all the charms of a woman
You kept the secret of your youth…

Clearly, I’ve listened to the Glee soundtrack a few too many times!

By the way, Glee comes back with new episodes on Tuesday!  Yay!

  1. Makes no sense to me, but I’m not a Glee fan. Can’t say I wasn’t warned. But I DO love that song. Did you ever see the movie “Teachers” with Nick Nolte? That song always reminds me of the movie.

    1. Not that it will explain much, but it occurs to me that I could have further explained the second half of the lines I quoted (assuming you didn’t already recognize them.) On Glee they did a “mash-up” of Don’t Stand So Close to Me and Young Girl by Gary Puckett. Don’t know if that helps any. 😉

      Afraid I’ve never heard of, let alone seen, “Teachers”, but maybe I’ll check it out.
