JAN 13, (re)duplication: fuddy-duddy

Authors' Note: 
(FUD-ee-dud-ee, or as a possibility here, fud-ee-DUD-ee)
Another example of a (re)duplication.
Readers willing to go down an internet rabbit-hole HERE can easily get to a collection of more than a dozen other short verses in which we have dealt with specific reduplications, as well as three fairly lengthy patter-songs about this fascinating linguistic phenomenon.
