Foob? WTF is a "Foob"?

Everyone has different methods of composing songs. Some do it on the toilet. Some do it in bed (songwriting that is). Some will be on the train going to work and something will come to them.

By the time I got done with it, to me it sounded like something from a Japanese play, but with many disclaimers, I have to admit, I wouldn't know Japanese opera from Polish zydeco music. Then again, towards the middle, you can hear the word, "FOOB" in the background.

Hence, I present to you, FOOB:
