“Sippity doo dah! Sippity yay!” (wine saying)

"Sippity do dah! Sippity yay!” is a wine saying (although it sometimes refers to sipping other drinks) that has been printed on many images. The sipping saying is a pun on the Academy Award-winning song, “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah,” from the Disney animated musical film Song of the South (1946).

“Sippity Do Dah (Drink in a pouch, 4 for $1)” was printed in a 1975 newspaper. “Sippity doo dah, sippity yay!” was posted on Twitter on August 7, 2009.

The wine saying became popular in 2015. “Sippity doo dah...Sippity yay!” was posted on Twitter by Wine Academy on January 28, 2015.


Wikipedia: Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah
“Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” is a song composed by Allie Wrubel with lyrics by Ray Gilbert from the Disney 1946 live action and animated movie Song of the South, sung by James Baskett. For “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah”, the film won the Academy Award for Best Original Song and was the second in a long line of Disney songs to win this award, after “When You Wish upon a Star” from Pinocchio (1940). In 2004 it finished at number 47 in AFI’s 100 Years...100 Songs survey of top tunes in American cinema.

For many years the song was part of an opening theme medley for the Wonderful World of Disney television program and it has often been used in other TV and video productions by the studio. It is one of many popular songs that features a bluebird ("Mr. Bluebird on my shoulder"), epitomized by the “Bluebird of Happiness,” as a symbol of cheer.

The song is influenced by the chorus of the pre-Civil War folk song “Zip Coon”, a “Turkey in the Straw” variation: “Zip a duden duden duden zip a duden day”. The term “Zip Coon” plays on a derogatory slang term for African Americans.
