"Do You Want To" as written by Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Nicholas John Mccarthy, Robert Hardy and Paul Robert Thompson....
Oh I woke up tonight I said I
I've gotta make somebody love me
I've gotta make somebody love me
And now I know, now I know, now I know, I know that is you
You're lucky lucky you're so lucky

Well do ya? do ya do ya want to?
Well do ya? do ya do ya want to?
Want to go where I've never let you before

Well do ya? do ya do ya want to?
Well do ya? do ya do ya want to?
Want to go where I've never let you before?

Well he's a friend and he's so proud of you
He's a friend and I knew him before you, oh yeah

Well he's a friend and we're so proud of you
Your famous friend, well I blew him before you, oh yeah

Well do ya? do ya do ya want to?
Well do ya? do ya do ya want to?
Want to go where I've never let you before?

Well here we are at the transmission party
I love your friends they're all so arty, oh yeah

Oh I when woke up tonight I said
I've gotta make somebody love me
I've gotta make somebody love me
And now I know, now I know, now I know, I know that is you
You're lucky lucky, you're so lucky

Well do ya? do ya do ya want to?
Well do ya? do ya do ya want to?
Want to go where I've never let you before?

You're lucky lucky, you're so lucky
Lucky lucky, you're so lucky
Lucky lucky, you're so lucky
Lucky lucky, you're so lucky
Lucky lucky, you're so lucky
Lucky lucky, you're so lucky
Yeah

    General CommentC'mon people, Franz's has so many gay references in many of their songs, but these ones are pretty loud and clear. To me, it sounds like he's singing to a guy who's wanted to hook up with him for a while ("Do you wanna go where i've never let you before").
    The whole "he's a friend and he's so proud of you" is a bit confusing however, my best guess is that he's talking about having a threesome.."he's a friend, and and I blew him before you")
    Transmission Party? - best guess is bodily fluid transmissions.
    "Your friends are all so arty" - gay men are stereotypically thought of as "arty"

    - some of this may be a long shot, but it's the only thing that relativley makes sense to me.
    Anyone else have something better?

    General CommentI thought this was all just stuff Kapranos had heard while clubbing, pieced together and all that. I like the gay idea though, because that's pretty sexy.

    I think Franz has done better, so I'm just hoping this doesn't set the tone for the album. I'll make the same comparison I did to Weezer's "Beverly Hills" and that's that this song is pretty good compared to what else is out there, but the band can do even better.

    General CommentExtremely catchy. The ending "YEAH" reminds me of the old album a lot for some reason.

    I might see em live in October!

    General CommentThis song will hook on...I think their lyrics are jus supposed to be fun...the gay interpretation is great, but i think it has a broader meaning for all as well.

    General CommentLoved it the moment I heard it! It's so bloody catchy, it's great!

    As for the lyrics, well all I can say is that Franz Ferdinand are quite good for doing confusing songs and this is a very good example of that. I think it's classic the way that their songs are weird :D

    General CommentI don't really know what this song means. Probably just random. But I always get the idea of ignorance, but I don't know why...
