Time for more tunes! And never has music been as important as the times we are now living in. So if you've not taken part in Music Monday before - hosted by the fab Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek - then join in now! We need to find new music, make ourselves smile, and dance round the living room to keep fit!!

So I've gone for a very apt song today - back to the 80's once more as I love that decade! - and it's DON'T STAND SO CLOSE TO ME by The Police! SOCIAL DISTANCING PEOPLE!!

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
This girl is half his age
Don't stand so close to me
Her friends are so jealous
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
