Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Some citations I can't be bothered to format ATM:
- "I see no good that comes of standing shilly shally, and letting the girl nurse herself with hopes of what must not be"
- If we loiter and dally, And stand shilly shally, 'Twixt the cup and the lip Some misfortune may slip, And the viands, tho' basted May never be tasted.
- When one has resolved, 'tis in vain to stand shilly-shally.
