In response to the request for the source of the Police song ( I know this
was
a while ago, but I've been out of town):
The song is "Don't Stand So Close to Me" and is (I think) on one of the
earlier
albums. It was also remixed by Sting in his later solo career, so would be
available on one of his albums as well. If you'd like to know the name of
the
album, let me know, since I have it at home and can look it up if you
want.
The lyric is something to the effect of:
"He starts to shake and cough
Just like the old man from the book by Nabokov"
Hope this helps.
