This is an obvious reference to the Beatles song "I am the walrus": "...I am the egg man, we are the egg men, I am the walrus, goo goo g'joob". It's just transcribed differently. (There is only one site on the internet using your transcription: see the second reference link below. The first reference shows about 1,460 hits.)

There is nothing to translate. The only thing one can do is to write out the sound phonetically in such a way that a Czech reader will reproduce the English original. (I think that the above transcription is a reasonable one.)
