: From the song in the Wizard of Oz "If I only had a Brain". What does "Life would be a Dingadairy" mean?
: Thank you
I would not be just a nuffin'
My head all full of stuffin'
My heart all full of pain.
I would dance and be merry
Life would be a ding-a-derry
If I only had a brain--Whoa!
Probably just a made up word. The lyricist was probably more concerned with how his words fit together and rhymed than that they were all real words and used properly!
