"Squeeze Box" as written by and Pete Townshend....
Mama's got a squeeze box
She wears on her chest
And when Daddy comes home

He never gets no rest
'Cause she's playing all night
And the music's all right
Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

Well the kids don't eat
And the dog can't sleep
There's no escape from the music
In the whole damn street
'Cause she's playing all night
And the music's all right

Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night
She goes in and out and in
And out and in and out and in and out
She's playing all night

And the music's all tight
Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night
She goes, squeeze me, come on and squeeze me
Come on and tease me like you do
I'm so in love with you

Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night
She goes in and out and in and out
And in and out and in and out
'Cause she's playing all night

And the music's all right
Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

    General Commentdaddy never sleeps at night... and moma goes in and out in and out in and out.... the squeeze box is on her chest... wich she plays all night... and u cantescape, it sounds like loud sex, id say its probablly written from a childs point of veiw, asking his parents what sex is, and thats how their parents explaned it. (screaming being singing, the music is the rhythem of the bed) heh... perhaps my mind is just preverted. email me if you agree

    General CommentThe "squeeze box" is something else entirely. It's the same thing as a "snapper". If you thinking of a lawnmower, then you might want to ask George Carlin about his thoughts on the subject.

    My OpinionEVERYBODY'S CORRECT!!

    Ya know man... if you would take the time to read the comments all of your questions would
    be answered. But instead, everyone just wants to see their name and every\\\one wants to hear
    themselves talk. I will bet you that if everyone just took one minute to look at the answers
    before commenting... there would be less than half the number of comments that there are now.
    I would even bet that there would be less than ten comments for every question!!

    It's on You!

    General CommentThe song is just about an accordian... right...? I dunno, the "squeeze me... I'm so in love..." bit sounds like something else entirely.

    General CommentIt seems to be more sophosticated than that....? I have no idea. Maybe sexual overtones? (when in doubt, it probably has to do with sex :)

    General CommentI'm sure it does have to do with sex...that's how I first thought of it.

    General CommentI think that it is about sex. A squeeze box is an accordion, but if they didn't intentionally make this a song about sex, it really doesn't make sense any other way. <_<
