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.
"Playing is not something I do at night, it's my function in life"
I know what you mean. I almost fell in love with a gal on the first date
because she used the word "loon" in a sentence.
My enthusiasm was somewhat tempered because the sentence in which the word
presented itself was a self-description.
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

rechargeables are slam-dunk.
8 AAs is a lot of batteries for a CD player. If it's a boombox, you'll

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
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.
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... : )
