Actually, it just referred to an older man - especially an uncle,
so not necessarily an "old" man.
Oom is still the common Dutch word for uncle, so yeah I know the word

I've never seen or heard the word "oom" in English, so wouldn't recommend its use in lyrics aimed at an English-speaking market.

Why does it have to start with a vowel? If you're going to eliminating words like fool, jerk, witch, knave, milf, mug, thug and twit, then I don't think you'll find anything better than Frownland's "oaf".

Every native English speaker uses "oom" all the time.

^Well, if it's a word, I've only seen it used in connection with the words "br" and "z".

I have decided to use "Earth" since it fits fine, and other proper choices were hard to find.

Thanks to all of you, very genius people!
