"Squeeze Box" is a song by The Who. It peaked at number 10 on the UK Singles Chart and number 16 in the US Billboard Hot 100. The song was also a number 1 hit in Australia and Canada and reached number 2 on the Irish charts. "Squeezebox" is a slang term for accordions and related instruments. The song's lyrics consist mostly of sexual innuendo ("She goes in and out and in and out", as an example). Written by Pete Townshend, the song was originally intended for a Who television special planned in 1974.

Pete Townshend did not think highly of the song, and was astonished at its chart success. "Intended as a poorly aimed dirty joke. I had bought myself an accordion and learned to play it one afternoon. The polka-esque rhythm I managed to produce from it brought forth this song. Amazingly recorded by The Who to my disbelief. Further incredulity was caused when it became a hit for us in the USA." Townshend once said.
