Searched the digitrad and only found a brief reference. Does anybody know additonal verses to this one? It's been around for ages...

There's a skeeter on my peter
Whack it off (Whack it off!)
There'es a skeeter on my peter
Whack it off (Whack it off!)
There's a dozen on my cousin
You can hear the bastards bussin'
There's a skeeter on my peter
Whack it off (Whack it off!)

Thanks in advance, musicologists, for an in-depth scholarly review of this gem.

Errr... Sorry, but I guess what I thought would clearly be understood as a playful embellishment ("in-depth scholarly review") could have been misconstrued. I mean, we're talking about a playfully off-color nonsense song, fer Gawd's sake... It's not as though I were making sport of 1860s-era regional variations of "The House Carpenter's Wife," is it?

So official notice is now given: No, I don't expect peer review and scholarly assessments of the request. Apologies to any and all legitimate musicologists (heck, the illegitimate ones, too) for my clumsy and insensitive attempt to humorously acknowlege my self consciousness in searching for a few odd verses of less than respectable stature. Merely trying to tap into the collective wit and wisdom of the 'Cat for a wee bit of fun.

Sheesh! When did this become so much work?

Yeah, and for that matter, at one place where I've been playing, all the regulars clamour for something they call "The Rodeo Song," which the standing house band closes every night with. Near as I can tell, it uses all sorts of cuss words that I'd never catch myself dead singing in public.

Part of the problem is that it's got a fairly transient, transitional crowd. Place can turn on a time from a room full of folks actually listening to my originals to bands of marauding tourista barhoppers cruising in for a shot and a chance to stand up on the stage and sing "American Pie" or "Margueritaville" with me while their girlfriends flash their $5,000 cosmetic enhancements.

God, I love this job.

Gargoyle- Maybe this works with the tune of "John Brown's Body" for you but I hear "If You're Happy and You Know It Clap Your Hands." But you're probably just stringing us along.

Uncle Steve- I'm sure there's a whole set of verses out there somewhere that campers have sang around their fires as the evening shadows darken, with each verse focusing on a choice body part to rhyme with. Now what rhymes with pimple?

Well Noreen, by your own rationale nobody asked for your two cents either. What's next Noreen? A silent forum? I must have missed the part where you shed some scholarly light on the subject. If you've never heard the song and obviously not interested in having any kind of fun what did you click on it for in the first place? Did the title get you a little aroused? However, I digress. I haven't been on the forum an awful lot but it seems to me that most Mudcatters like a good joke as well as a good ribbing. It's generally a fun place to be. Share a smile already!

Excellent... we're warming to the topic. Thanks, all, for your thoughts.

I first heard the tune from a counselor/guide whilst on a canoe trip in the Boundary Waters along the Minnesota/Canada border, back in the mid-1970s. And it was to the tune of "If You're Happy and You Know It" (Now THERE'S a tune worth tracking backwards). As the 13-year-old kid that I was, it was an enthralling experience.

Then to my surprise, as a college student in Minneapolis, I heard it done by a John Valby wanna-be (Rats, what WAS that guy's name... Johnny Holmes?) who used to tour the midwest with a band called the "INSERT NAME Experience" staging raucous debacles. The band played a mix of Dr. Dirty/Dr. Demento stuff, blended together with a Firesign Theatre sensibility for a stage show.

Curmudgeon -- Thanks for the book suggestion. I'll snare a copy of that one!

I recently heard a live recording of the song (with several other verses) on XM radio -- either on the "XM Comedy" or "Special X" channel.   you could always phone or email the DJ to inquire about who recorded it so you could hunt it down. (Or, if you have an XM radio, you could simply request that they play the song again.)

Tracey and Duane taught me this song (loosely to the tune of "She'll Be Coming Around The Mountain"): "There's a skeeter [i.e. mosquito] on my peter whacking off./ There's a skeeter on my peter whacking off./ There's a dozen on my cousin,/ I can hear the fuckers buzzin'./ There's a skeeter on my peter whacking off."

The "skeeter" WAV file at this site reminded me of the verse I heard in 1966...Similar to the one they's recorded..."She'll Be Comin Round the Mountain:"
http://wavthis.com/X.html

Play the WAV you'll like it!

Between the wack off verses is:

She was going down the mountain at a 100 miles an hours
When the chain on her bicycle broke.
They found her on the grass With the sprocket up her ass And her titties playing Dixie in the spokes.

My friend who played it also combined it with some other verses from a dittie that went

There may be cooties on some of you beauties but there ain't no cooties on me.
There may be fleas on some of your knees but there ain't no fleas on me.
There may be bugs on some of you mugs but there ain't no bugs on me.
There may be skeeters on some of your peters but there ain't no skeeters on me.
There may be flies on some of you guys but there ain't no flies on me.
There may be slugs on some of your jugs but there ain't no slugs on me.
etc....

i apoligize charlie noble for burdening him with my problems. i was only having some fun in trying to defend the curiousity of uncle steve. (he can fully defend himself however) but to get to the point i've found a few tid-bits here and there that might be of intrest to the curious mind. for starters i found gargoyle's lyrical version on yet another site. as to the tune, it sounds an awful lot like if you're happy and you know it but, regretably, i've found very little info on the origins of that song. only that a d-a-g progression fits nicely. if you are from the coming round the mountain camp there is an a lot of history behind that song as being an old railroad tune. it is believed to reflect a famous woman of the rr labor movement in the appalachains. on the other hand some people contend it is more vague and originated in the west around colorado. if this is the case i suspect that skeeter on my peeter originated from railroad workers as a bar room spoof of this tune. just a guess??? if you want to hear a funky version of skeeter on my peeter the jam band moe has covered it on several occasions. i'm not sure about dates and places of recordings but i'm sure you can easily find what your looking for.

Well Cluin - THANKS!!

You just defragged another from the all elusive memory that immediately forgets the Latin future-perfect-past-tense conjugative chart but never forgets the rhyme told you once in an elementry school yard. West Coast 1962

(Tune - Under the Old Apple Tree) It was under the old Model T
When she first showed it to me
It was hairy and black
And she called it her crack
But it looked like a man-hole to me.

So I took out my 14 inch pole
And stuck it up her man-hole
She started to scream
So I let out the cream
She started to cry
So I pissed in her eye
It was under the old Model T

In a similar thread a more sophisticated version is recalled.

Ha!
My uncle used to sing it:

In the shade of the old apple tree
Is where she first showed it to me
It was smelly and brown
with hair all around
But it looked like a bird's nest to me

So I took out my Pride of New York
It fitted her just like a cork
She giggled, "Tee hee,
Take it out while I pee..."
In the shade of the old apple tree.


followed by

Walkin' down Main Street, lookin' in ev'ry door
I'll be a sonofabitch if I could find a whore..."


There's more but that's enough of that one.

There were a few others:

Two Dutchmen
Brown, Brown, Dirty Old Brown (The Ballad of Officer Reilly)
The Ring Dang Doo
Stompin' Tom's version of Green Green Grass of Home


Then my cousin and I would throw a few MacLean & MacLean ones into the mix:

Remember?...

Whistle while you work
Hitler was a jerk
Mussolini
Bit his weenie
Then it wouldn't squirt.

Then there was the tune they whistled in "Bridge on the River Kwai":

Hitler... has only got one ball
Goering... has two, but very small
Himmler... I hear is sim'lar
And they say Goebbels
Has no balls
At all.

I seem to remember from Scout camp:

"I'm for ever swatting skeeters,
Little things that buzz & bite.
They fly so high, in earth & sky,
And like my dreams they come at night..."

(ttto; Blowing bubbles)

Nigel
