That song's called Fred

This song here was written under the influence of alcohol
which has a tendency to make you think things are funnier
than what they really are. Had you been drinkin' alcohol at the time of
hearing a Fred song, you'd be laying on the floor right now saying that
"Fred" song's whipping my ass. Turn it off.
