Phrase meaning and origin

Posted by Amanda on July 14, 2003

i was wondering if anyone could tell me what the phrase: "Up the dicky dancers" means, i've always been told that it means to go up stairs to bed, but it just doesn't make sense because thats not what the words mean, so I was just wondering if that is what it really means, where it originated from and if it's just a saying used in the north east of england?
