According to Songfacts, this song is about a teenager who commits suicide when he loses his girlfriend. It took Sting only a few minutes to write the lyrics. They are not supposed to be deep and meaningful, but more of a joke.

This was the first Police song to chart. It hit #42 in England when it was released in 1978. A year later, after The Police became widely known, it was re-released and went to #2.
