Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

This is where I'll be
So heavenly
So come and dance with me Michael

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

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

So close now, so close now
So come and dance with me
So 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
The only one I'd ever want, the only one I 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
So come and dance with me Michael

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

I'm all that you see, you wanna see
So come and dance with me, Michael

So close now
It's close now
So come and dance with me
So 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
The only one I'd ever want, the only one I 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

Michael you're the only one I'd ever want
The only one I'd ever want, the only one I ever want
Michael you're the only one I'd ever want
The only one I'd ever want, the only one I 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
Nothing matters now, nothing matter, nothing matters, oh yeah

Overall Meaning

The song "Michael" by Franz Ferdinand is a catchy and energetic dance track that showcases the band's signature sound of post-punk revival mixed with indie rock. The lyrics are mostly focused on the singer's desire to dance with a man named Michael, who is depicted as a beautiful and sensual person. The lyrics suggest that the singer is attracted to Michael in a sexual way, as they mention "sticky hips" and "stubble on my sticky lips". However, the song's overall message does not only revolve around sexuality but also on the pure joy of dancing and the connection that can arise between two people on the dance floor.


The chorus of the song is especially powerful and infectious, inviting Michael to dance with the singer. The repetition of the line "So come and dance with me" emphasizes the singer's desire to connect with Michael and highlights the joy and freedom found in dancing together. The band's use of several musical elements such as the catchy guitar riffs, the upbeat rhythm section, and the catchy melody, contribute to the overall feel-good vibe of the song.

Franz Ferdinand: writes this song
Historians: They were roommates

@abhijithnair767

Oh my god!They were roommates!

@RogueEagle

Heard that in Ron Howards voice

@throbbingfellow1136

In this case, it’s actually true. FF themselves have said it’s not genuinely gay.

@JoeBidenOfficial

kapranos said in an interview that he is straight and he wrote this song to piss off homophobes

@NoComment-xd9qp

still pretty gay though. No way around that.

My name is Michael and I just watched Franz Ferdinand live a couple of days ago and it was so awesome when they played this. I felt like they were playing it to me.
