At first, that looked like a pun. i think it may have something to it. Linguistic roots.

You can google the scripts. It's in there several ways, including, "Hi You, Silver!!" "Hi ho, Silver!!' and Hi yo, Silver!!"
It's quite possible that the original phrase came from the word hie, since they were written in the 30's and that word was probably more common. "Hie You, Silver!!" makes perfect sense, grammatically, but not necessarily theatrically or written to be read by radio actors.

My enthusiasm was somewhat tempered because the sentence in which the word presented itself was a self-description.

I see HF has AA batteries on sale w/coupon 24 for $4.99. I've had better luck with those than the equivalent from Frys Electronics (which were too weak to power my CD player).

FWIW, Wally World will sell you a set of four NiMH AAs and a charger for 13 bucks. That should power your CD player for the next decade or so. Only place I use nonrechargeables these days is applications where the draw is so low that self-discharge becomes an issue (clocks mostly). If it's something where I change the batteries every day or every week the rechargeables are slam-dunk.

8 AAs is a lot of batteries for a CD player. If it's a boombox, you'll probably be further ahead looking for some way to power that off of the wall.
For about a year of listening to CDs, you could get a "shop" or "jobsite" boombox that uses the same batteries as your cordless drill. Some will even charge the batteries if hooked up to wall power. (Makita, why doesn't yours?)

This CD/AM/FM player is actually designed to be used in the shower, so I'm going to stick with the batteries. I'd estimate that the batteries last for about 20 hours of CD play (which I think is quite acceptable). I'm most-probably behind the times--I'd expect that an mp3 player would provide more performance for the same number of batteries.

Do you really use it in the shower? I cannot imagine going 6 to 8 minutes without music!

To be honest, I bought it during a period when I had to spend time in the shower for medicinal purposes. At the time it was, perhaps, my favorite appliance in the house. These days, it only sees occasional use... My dancing has probably suffered... : )

SWMBO and I spent a lot more than 6 to 8 minutes in the shower and Barry White sings much better than I do.

I bought 100 packs of AAs and AAAs from Lowes for $20 (each). I *hate* AAAs.
