The letter this week is F
for Fiddle Dee Dee!
So, used as an interjection the expression Fiddledeedee indicates scorn, or indifference, - impatience, or disbelief. Perhaps you remember Scarlett O'Hara and her careless dismissal in Gone with the Wind.....
and then there is the children's' rhyme that announces the nuptials of
the Fly and the Bumble Bee
Oh fiddle dee dee, fiddle dee dee
the Fly has married the Bumble Bee!!
but have you heard the lovely young people's Choral by the same name?
Fiddle de dee - Kurt Bikkembergs
Children's Choir Cantabile uit Novotroitsk
or Lionel Hampton and his orchestra - Fiddle de Dee (recorded 1940)
For more really interesting interpretations of the letter F fiddle on over to
ABC Wednesday, here, with thanks to Roger and Denise!
