Squeezebox Lyrics

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...

    Wow. If taking the non-sexual interpretation, a squeeze box is an accordion, and the "in and out" is what you do while playing an accordion... Of course, the song is really about sex, with squeeze box most probably being her breasts, and the in and out referring to intercourse.

    Eh, one more thing...it's meant to be humorous as well and the pun lies more with the band indicating wild times (rock-n-roll) for a woman of the day probably crushing on the band and pushing the buck playing loud music...oh, my! What ever does she do with the children...yeah, they jam it too. LOL.

    While this has now become clearly "suggestive" (only after suggestions), it still can simply be interpreted to mean the "mama" stays up all hours of the night playing music...she's "in and out," selectively hearing her environment while everyone around can see when she's "out" and pluged "in." Her squeeze box, (or jukebox), is too loud because she has it cranked up! (before head phones) and squeeze and tease me could refer to songs that are obviously sultry, but it doesn't mean she is literally engaged in the act...a love affair with music, perhaps? Or, the other way. Who knows but The Who, and who would have guessed it would be their best? Or, at least that is my opinion.

    The song is about sex. The squeezebox is her chest and no one sleeps because she keps having sex at night. This song only got onto the radio because it is "Suggestive".

    A squeeze box is like a acordian, also called a Hurdy Gurdy, mom can't get dad to share his feelings and mom has needs, so if she is not getting any, dad is not gonna sleep.
