VERSE - play D# 4 times and then Gm 4 times, usually that for each line

D#/Eb x4       Gm
Young teacher, the subject
D#/Eb x4       Gm
Of schoolgirl fantasy
D#/Eb x4       Gm
She wants him so badly
D#/Eb x4       Gm

D#/Eb x4       Gm
Inside her theres longing
D#/Eb x4       Gm
This girls an open page
D#/Eb x4       Gm
Book marking - shes so close now
D#/Eb x4       Gm (let ring)
This girl is half his age 

CHORUS

D    A      D    A
Dont stand, dont stand so
D    A        Bm       D
Dont stand so close to me

VERSE (repeat above)

Her friends are so jealous
You know how bad girls get
Sometimes its not so easy
To be the teachers pet
Temptation, frustration
So bad it makes him cry
Wet bus stop, shes waiting
His car is warm and dry

CHORUS (repeat above)

Dont stand, dont stand so
Dont stand so close to me

VERSE

Loose talk in the classroom
To hurt they try and try
Strong words in the staffroom
The accusations fly
Its no use, he sees her
He starts to shake and cough
Just like the old man in
That book by nabakov
 
CHORUS

Dont stand, dont stand so
Dont stand so close to me

Dont stand, dont stand so
Dont stand so close to me
