"Cheekah Bow Bow (That Computer Song)" is a song by Dutch Eurodance-pop group the Vengaboys. It was released as their eighth United Kingdom single, and their ninth overall. The song charted at number 19 in the United Kingdom, making it, at the time, their worst-performing single.

The single was officially credited to the Vengaboys ft. Cheekah, referring to the animated computer in the music video, which performs the lyrics (all of which are related to computer terminology, but initially feature some tongue-in-cheek sexual innuendo: e.g. "The way you used your joystick / Has really made my mouse click". However, in the second part of the song, the lyrics portray sexually transmitted diseases once again using computer terminology e.g. "The way you used your joystick / Has really made me feel sick" and "The doctor checked my hard drive / A virus in my archive / My disc was not protected / and now I am infected").
