    Song MeaningContrary to popular belief, Hocus Pocus is not simply jibberish, but the greatest clue humanity has towards the discovery of the Holy Grail.
    As I'm sure you know, the holy grail is a sacred symbol that has been disputed and sought after for centuries. There have been arguments that the grail represents the Christian God's son, Jesus' blood line. Nobel Prize winners Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman disproved this theory in 1987. Focus gives us important clues of the grail's true meaning within it's famous, and seemingly innocent song "Hocus Pocus."

    Its first line "Yodeadodoyodeadodoyodeadodoyodeadodo" is obviously an allusion to the great "Ard-Rí" (high king) of Ireland. Ard-Rís, not allowed any imperfections, were avid believers in the myth of the Holy grail, and sought after it to ensure their state of perfection, believing that if they found the grail, they would become a being of true perfection, like Jesus. They divided Ireland in to 5 provinces, to perform a grid-like search for the Grail. This is interesting to note because it has been rumored that Jesus had 5 fingers. The lyrics "Yodeadodoyodeadodoyodeadodoyodeadodo" roughly translates to "Jesus turned the grail into a portkey, it is hidden in the Irish Country side." This is the first important Clue Thijs van Leer slyly slips into "Hocus Pocus".

    I know you are thinking "So what? What makes that a reliable source of information?" In July 1999, Anthropologist Edward Tylor discovered a locked door in the back of his closet of his Beverly Hills home. The door was made of Hawthorne, and upon the door in gold letters were the words "What's da password?" Focus, upon hearing of this mysterious door, traveled to Beverly Hills to help. Drummer Pierre van der Linden walked right up to the door and whispered "humpelilly-luptodoro". This proves Focus is in fact a band of wise wizards.

    The final clue is in plain sight, and one of the most convincing pieces of evidence of the location of the holy grail. The term "Bom" is used within the song 26 times. 26 is the number of words that the word "grail" can be rearranged into. This leads us to the conclusion that The holy grail is most definitely in Ireland.

    General CommentSomebody transcribed Thijs van Leer's "lyrics"?


    Otherwise a kick-ass instrumental. Jan Akkerman is a god.

    General CommentI think you'd have to be psychotic to find meaning in this song. Some amazing guitar playing for the time though. Who else played like that then? Was ahead of his time for sure.

    And I thought posting the "lyrics" to Ten Foot Pole by ZZ Top was senseless and funny, this one tops that.

    General CommentThis band was dynamite! I recommend for you all to listen to FOCUS´ "Hamburger Concerto". One of my top favourite pieces. And: if you want to sell your speakers: play "Hamburger Concerto" on them: sold!
