"Miss Gradenko" is a song written by Stewart Copeland and recorded by The Police in 1982 / 1983.

About the song

There's a slightly different mix than the one on the LP.

The first notes of the guitar solo are missing. But there are some additional guitar sounds in the parts after the solo.

The end is also slightly different: the LP versions ends with the vocals on "us", whereas in this earlier mix the instruments can still beheard after the "us".

Lyrics

Don’t tell the director I said so 
But are you safe Miss Gradenko? 
We were at a policy meeting 
They were planning new ways of cheating 
I didn’t want to rock your boat 
But you sent this dangerous note 
You’ve been letting your feelings show 

Are you safe Miss Gradenko? 
Miss Gradenko are you safe? 
Are you safe Miss Gradenko? 
Miss Gradenko are you safe? 
Is anybody alive in here? 
Is anybody alive in here? 
Is anybody at all in here? 
Nobody but us in here 
Nobody but us 
Is anybody alive in here? 
Nobody but us 

Your uniform don’t seem to fit 
You’re much too alive in it 
You’ve been letting your feelings show 

Are you safe Miss Gradenko? 
Miss Gradenko are you safe? 
Are you safe Miss Gradenko? 
Miss Gradenko are you safe? 
Is anybody alive in here? 
Is anybody alive in here? 
Is anybody at all in here? 
Nobody but us in here 
Nobody but us 
Is anybody alive in here? 
Nobody but us
