"Transylvania " as written by Thomas Michael Fletcher and Dougie Lee Poynter....
Anne Boleyn she kept her tin
Which all her hopes and dreams were in
She plans to run away with him forever
(Never to be seen again)

Leaves a note and starts to choke
Can feel the lump that's in her throat
It's raining and she leaves her coat in silence

We're sorry but we disagree
The boy is vermin, can't you see?
We'll drown his sins in misery
And rip him out of history

People marching to the drums
Everybody's having fun to the sound of love
Ugly is the world we're on
If I'm right then prove me wrong
I'm stunned to find a place we belong

Who is your lover? I couldn't tell
When hell freezes over, that's when I'll tell
Who is your lover? I couldn't tell
When will this stop?!

Racing, pacing in the dark
She's searching for a lonely heart
She finds him but his heart has stopped
She breaks down

We're sorry but your majesty
Refusing orders from the queen
Results in a monstrosity
(Remembers a voice and hears him sing)

People marching to the drums
Everybody's having fun to the sound of love
Ugly is the world we're on
If I'm right then prove me wrong
I'm stunned to find a place we belong

Who is your lover? I couldn't tell
When hell freezes over, that's when I'll tell
Who is your lover? I couldn't tell
When will this stop?!

People marching to the drums
Everybody's having fun to the sound of love
Ugly is the world we're on
If I'm right then prove me wrong
I'm stunned to find a place we belong

Who is your lover? I couldn't tell
When hell freezes over, that's when I'll tell
Who is your lover? I couldn't tell
When hell freezes over, that's when I'll tell

Who is your lover? I couldn't tell
When hell freezes over, that's when I'll tell
Who is your lover? I couldn't tell
When hell freezes over, that's when I'll tell

(People marching to the drums)
Who is your lover? I couldn't tell
When hell freezes over, that's when I'll tell
(People marching to the drums)
Who is your lover? I couldn't tell
When hell freezes over, that's when I'll tell

(People marching to the drums)
Who is your lover? I couldn't tell
When hell freezes over, that's when I'll tell
(People marching to the drums)
Who is your lover? I couldn't tell
When will this stop?!

    Song MeaningTransylvania is obviously about Dougie being gay. Being gay in these times is like being Anne Boleyn in the story of the song. Dougie was secretly dating with Danny and Danny did't want to make it public but Dougie did so... this song is about that. Dougie and Danny aren't together now, Dougie dumped Danny because he got fed up of being secretly dating with him, such a pity.

    You know "who is you lover?" "I couldn't tell" says it all.

    General CommentI love this song!!!! Favourite on the new album, Little Joanna as close second.
    Doug's quite the songwriter. I don't really know what it means...
    something about people being in love but it's really not allowed.
    lav it.

    General CommentI hated this song at first...especially since Dougie's voice actually made my ears want to bleed. Why is it so high pitch?! It made me cringe at first. But then I overlooked his screechy voice and it began to grow on me. It's a pretty cool tune to be honest. Have no idea what the meaning is, but I think Dougie should write the songs more often :]

    General Commenti found out that Dougie wrote this song, which then meant i had to find out more because i love him :)

    this is what i heard the song meant.
    its set in like medival or tudor times. its about a queen or princess (Anne Boleyn was one of Henry 8th's wives). and she's in love with a servant or peasant guy- and plans to run away with him.
    the lyrics "rip him out in history" are the royal court talking about getting rid of this servant peasant guy because he's not high enough class for Ann Boleyn.

    however he's really happy so sings out loud about his love for her ( "everybody having fun to the sound of love")

    its basically how the high class of the time disagree with their relationship.
    i think its a really unusual mcfly song, but i really like it. especially the end bit with "who is your lover.. "
    dougie did a good job writing it :)
    hope this has helped anyone who didnt know wot it meant. xxx

    General CommentAaah the correct lyrics!
    I love the way it ends, such a pretty way to end a song.
    Its the first story I heard from McFly and it’s a very nice story, it al being written by Dougie make’s it al little more a funny story but its such a cool song

    General CommentWow okay I've listened to this song so many times, and I have no idea what its about. I know that Dougie wrote it, and I know he's a little weird. I was definitely not suprised he wrote lyrics such as these, because they seem to jump all over the place, and are a little dark and weird.

    If anyone could pitch in what they think, I'm madly curious...

    General CommentI think the lyrics sort of just tell the story of Ann Boleyn, second wife of king Henry VIII.
    She was beheaded on charges of adultery and treason, apparantly she had several affairs with guys of lower class.
    The parts Tom sings tells the storyline about Ann Boleyn and her lover.
    The parts sung in those deep voices are the oppinions of the people in that time, they didn't approve of it because 1. Ann was married to Henry and 2. the guys she had an affair with were all of lower class. ''Drown his sins in misery and rip him out of history'' might refer to the fact that Ann's lovers were also beheaded a few days before her own execution.
    Dougie's part (the chorus), I think, is the lover's point of view. He doesn't care about all the people that dissaprove of their relationship, he's just happily in love.
    that's what I think, but yeah..knowing dougie it could be anything really..

    P.S. LOVE this song! xx

    General Commentahhh thanks!
    yeah, you're right, coz i went on their website and they explain the story behind every song. i'm guessing the part that alternates between tom and danny is the view of ann?
    dougie should definitely write more often!

    General CommentThis is what Dougie said about the song:


    Dougie: "It's set in medieval times – it has a very dark atmosphere – and it's about a member of the royal family falling in love with a farmboy. They plan to run away together where these things don't matter. The verses are narrated, the bridge is the guy singing and the chorus is the crowd singing."
