The phrase was first used in songs by artists such as The Beatles and shortly after by Simon & Garfunkel. This phrase has absolutley no definitive meaning given by dictionaries or artists such as John Lennon who first used it. The phrase has two other widely known spellings: goo goo g'joob
. It is believed to be used in songs and in 60s and 70s slang as a phrase left to be freely interpreted by anyone based on the surrounding context it is used in. The freedom to betsow any meaning upon the phrase makes the word a statement about freedom of expression, which is a meaning in itself.
Another widely accepted variation of the meaning is a slang way to assure the state of things is entirely fine; an expression of reassuring goodness. Also used as a way to introduce an effect or say "hey whatdya know--".

Put it in your pantry with your cupcakes
It's a little secret, just the Robinsons' affair
Most of all, you've got to hide it from the kids

on the beach to hatch, then coo-coo-ca-choo, they find their way back to the big 'ol blue. --Crush from "Finding Nemo"
