Blur - Song 2 lyrics meaning

Meaning

The iconic 'Whoohoo!' that constitutes the entire lyrical content for the chorus to 'Song 2' was, according to Erik Hage of AllMusic.com, inspired by Bob Nastanovich, lead singer of '90s indie-rock outfit Pavement:

"[Bob] was a force of nature, adding the strange rants, harmonies, and musical accents that helped characterize the uncanny sound of Pavement… Reportedly, Nastanovich's live vocal stylings inspired the 'whoohoo' chorus in Blur's memorable 1997 hit 'Song 2'."
