: There is a song tittled like this by British musician, Nick Lowe.
: But what does it mean, Bo Bo Skediddle ???

: The lyrics go like this;

: They holler Bo Bo
: While they wait here in line

: Bo Bo Skediddle
: Watch him go
: with a hitty bitty witty ditty
: Round the floor

Skiddaddle (or skeddaddle) is a slang term meaning 'leave in a hurry'. Not sure if this is still in common use although I still use it (in the UK).
