Don't Stand So Close to Me/Young Girl by The Police/Gary Puckett & the Union Gap is a mash-up featured in Ballad, the tenth episode of Season One. It is sung by Will.

In this song, he tries to make Rachel understand he isn't interested in a relationship with her and that she is far too young to date him. Emma tells Will to sing his feelings to Rachel, but Rachel misunderstands the message thinking that it is because she was a young girl and that it was "hard for him to stand close to her." Both Emma and Rachel are gushing over Will during this song. After Will sees Rachel didn't understand the message he was trying to give her, he asks Emma what message she got, and her reply is simply, "You're a very good performer, Will."

Lyrics

Will:
Young teacher
The subject of school girl fantasy
She wants him so badly
Knows what she wants to be

With all the charms of a woman (oooh)
You've kept the secret of your youth (oooh)
Bookmark it
She's so close now
This girl is half his age

Don't stand,
Don't stand so,
Don't stand so close to me

Young girl, you're out of your mind
Your love for me is way out of line
Better run, girl
You're much too young, girl

Temptation, frustration
So bad it makes him cry
Beneath your perfume and makeup
You're just a baby in disguise
Get out of here before you have the time to change your mind
'Cause I'm afraid you're going too far

Don't stand,
Don't stand so,
Don't stand so close to me
Don't stand,
Don't stand so,
Don't stand so close to me

Young girl, you're out of your mind
Your love for me is way out of line
Better run, girl
You're much too young, girl

Don't stand,
Don't stand so,
Don't stand so close to me
You're much too young, girl (Don't stand, don't stand so, don't stand so close to me)
You're much too young, girl

Trivia

  • The mash-up was performed as an extended version by Matthew at his solo mini-concert at The Grove in January 2011.
  • They changed the lyrics of Young Girl to make it more appropriate. Originally, Young Girl was meant to be sung by a guy that fell in love with younger girl, and in this version, they changed it to fit the storyline.
  • This is the first mash-up performed as a solo on the show.
