About Peek-a-boo!

"Peek-a-Boo!" is a song by American new wave band Devo, written by Mark Mothersbaugh and Gerald Casale. It appears on their fifth studio album Oh, No! It's Devo. The single features the non-album track, "Find Out" as its B-side, which was also released as a bonus track on the Infinite Zero Archive/American Recordings CD reissue of the album. "Find Out" was later re-recorded by Devo's bass guitarist Gerald Casale's solo project Jihad Jerry & the Evildoers for the album Mine is Not a Holy War. According to Gerald Casale from the audio commentary for their film, The Complete Truth About De-Evolution, "Peek-a Boo! was a song about Devo's circus-like look and the dark side of human nature, the side we try to keep secret, the side we try to deny, in this Christian world where we're only supposed to have happy endings and only supposed to be good, and instead Devo is dealing with what evil is here in a very light-hearted manner."

Peek-a-boo!
I can see you
And I know what you do
So put your hands on your face
And cover up your eyes
Don't look until I signal

The way that we weren't is what we'll become
So please pay attention while I show you some
Of what's about to happen

Peek-a-boo!
I know what you do
Cause I do it too

Laugh if you want to or say you don't care
If you cannot see it you think it's not there
It doesn't work that way

Their music and stage show mingle kitsch science fiction themes, deadpan surrealist humor, and mordantly satirical social commentary.
