Hi seniors, juniors, new comers!

Does anyone know a sharp meaning for the greeting sing-a-song form "Howdy hidy hody"?

Thanks in advance

    Oh, sure, this is very common. Howdy, hidy ho or hodey.

    This is just a cute and silly way to say hello. First of all, howdy is commonly said among co-workers or friends. Then you just extend the howdy with howdy ho or howdy hidy hodey. The person who uses this is being excessively cute or friendly.
