"There's a Skeeter on My Peter (Knock it Off)" is a well-known humorous song. It is sung to the tune of "If You're Happy and You Know It" or sometimes "She'll Be Coming Round the Mountain". The premise of this song is that the mosquito is on the singer's penis ("peter") and he would like someone to cause the insect to depart from his appendage. This song, like many in its genre, has frequently variable lyrics, including substituting "knock it off" with "beat it off" or "whack it off".[citation needed]
