GUEST,Ken Brock What is a 'Doxy'? (97* d) RE: What is a 'Doxy'? 01 Feb 09


The term is used in the book for the circa 1956 musical The Music Man, when salesman Charlie Cowell finds he has been tricked by Marian Paroo into missing his train. He calls her a "round-heeled doxy fizz-gig".

The show begins July 4, 1912 (incidentally, first day of use of the 48 satr US flag - perhaps to save expense on scenery?), and has numerous terms archaic by 1956, especially in "Rock Island" and "Trouble".
