When I kissed the teacher

I came across this song while compiling song sheets of top ABBA hits for my next ukulele jam session. Always curious to learn new songs, I’m sure this particular one belongs to the politically incorrect category today.

When I was leaving Maui, a special policy directive was issued forbidding such acts because of unequal power base and the negative effect it would have on other students, teachers, etc.

Everybody screamed when I kissed the teacher
And they must have thought they dreamed when I kissed the teacher
All my friends at school
They had never seen the teacher blush, he looked like a fool
Nearly petrified ’cause he was taken by surprise
When I kissed the teacher
Couldn’t quite believe his eyes, when I kissed the teacher
My whole class went wild
As I held my breath, the world stood still, but then he just smiled
I was in the seventh heaven when I kissed the teacher
One of these days
Gonna tell him I dream of him every night
One of these days
Gonna show him I care, gonna teach him a lesson alright
I was in a trance when I kissed the teacher
Suddenly I took the chance when I kissed the teacher
Leaning over me, he was trying to explain the laws of geometry
And I couldn’t help it, I just had to kiss the teacher
In April 2016, the University of Hawaii issued a special policy directive about the necessary disclosure of consensual romantic (and/or sexual) relationships between teachers and their students, supervisors and their subordinates. The move was ahead of other institutions in the USA, as a pre-emptive measure to show that the university takes it seriously.
It’s easy to assume that “consensual” should be allowed, for “non-consensual” is obviously not. However, the policy clearly states that “consensual” is not allowed: It is a violation of this policy for an employee to initiate or engage in a romantic, dating, or sexual relationship with another employee or a student whom he/she currently supervises, directs, instructs, evaluates, advises, or has substantial influence over wherein a power and control differential exists.
