"Michael" as written by Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy, Robert Hardy and Paul Robert Thompson....
This is where I'll be
So heavenly
So come and dance with me Michael

So sexy, I'm sexy
Come and dance with me Michael

I'm all that you see, you want to see
Come and dance with me Michael

So close now so close now
Come and dance with me
Come and dance with me
So come and dance with me

Michael you're the boy with all the leather hips
Sticky hair, sticky hips, stubble on my sticky lips
Michael you're the only one I'd ever want
Beautiful boys on a beautiful dance-floor
Michael you're dancing like a beautiful dance-whore
Michael waiting on a silver platter now
And nothing matters now

This is what I am, I am a man
Come and dance with me Michael

So strong now, it's strong now
Come and dance with me Michael

I'm all that you'll be, you'll ever see
So come and dance with me, Michael

So close now.
You're close now.
Come and dance with me.
Come and dance with me. [Repeat: x2]

Michael you're the boy with all the leather hips
Sticky hair, sticky hips, stubble on my sticky lips
Michael you're the only one I'd ever want
Beautiful boys on a beautiful dance-floor
Michael you're dancing like a beautiful dance-whore
Michael waiting on a silver platter now
And nothing matters now

    when a song like "i kissed a girl" is totally alright in the publics eye. if i sing "i kissed a girl" will that make me gay. oh no!
    No of course that won't.
    so..just stop.

    General CommentLook, don't get me wrong. I heart vagina. But this song is just really, really good. Honestly, I wish it weren't so difficult NOT to sing along. Funny thing, that one of the best songs on the cd has the most divisive lyrics. Just imagine a girl named Michael. Have you ever met a girl named Michael? No? Well, tell yourself she exists, and she is hell of beautiful.

    General CommentWOW. I wish I was insecure enough about my sexuality that a SONG would threaten it. This is a really good song. I thought people were suspose to be open minded these days.

    Guess not.

    General Comment‘Michael’ may at first appear to be a frank exploration of homoeroticism ("Michael you’re dancing like a beautiful dance whore") but really Alex is just playing at sexual roles in the same way Morrissey enjoyed 20 years ago.

    General CommentOh, my friend Michael says this song's about him...right.
    I read in an article on franzferdinand.org that it's actually about something Alex witnessed. One of his friends got drunk and this friend and Michael...well, you read the song.

    General Commenti love this song. its very brave of FF to produce a song about homosexuality. i salute them for it *salutes* thats one of the reasons i like this band so much: they dont have to fit in the modern mold. dont get me wrong, im not one of those people obbsessed with indivudiality, but it is nice to hear something other than the norm once in a while.
