KGT 77:  Perhaps the most important type of song is the {may' boom}, literally "battle song", which commemorates famous battles and heroic exploits. It is never inappropriate to burst into song (there is a special verb for this: {wup}) and sing a {may' bom}. At any social gathering, in addition to eating and drinking, there is no question that there will also be singing.

Pun:
 "whoop"

Related words:

bom 		sing, chant (v)
much  	present, perform (music) (v)
