This song was sung by Finnish immigrants in northern US states like Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The word "piikkisika" means porcupine in Finnish. Some people Anglicized the spelling to make it "peek-a seek-a". You can find the spelling of the song both ways. There are also slightly different versions of the song.
