I have never heard "bippity boppity".

How is it used?

I call His Nibs his nibs :-D he doesn't know I do though :-D

I like to air a few annoying phrases from time to time. I had a run on 'bob' for a while when everyone on Corrie was suddenly bobbing hither and yon.
My favourite was Audrey - "Ah'll bob you a text" :-D
Funny, they don't say it much now. :-(
