oops
oops-a-daisy
ups-a-daisy
whoops
whoopsy-daisy (W3)

Die verschiedenen Varianten von "whoopsy-daisy" scheinen keinen wirklich lautmalerischen Ursprung zu haben.

Merriam-Webster takes "oops" or "whoops" only back to 1933, so it doesn't seem to be as old as all that. There are online takes on oops-a-daisy.

"Oops-a-daisy" stammt aus der TV-Sprache.


...
Well, there is always the outside chance that we are talking about the flower name that comes from the Old English "daegesege". It's more likely, though, that the "daisy" in "upsy-daisy" comes from "(lack)aday" with the adjectival suffix "-sy" tacked on. The documentation is weak, but variants in several dialects point to this possibility and it makes good semantic sense.
...
So, "upsy-daisy" means "up" to almost everyone, and "whoopsy-daisy" means "down" (falling or dropping), but there is a gray area surrounding "oopsy-daisy."

...
There are lots of forms of this expression: "upsidaisy", "upsa-daisy", "upsy-daisy", and "oops-a-daisy", variously hyphenated on the rare occasions they turn up in print.
...
Its history is closely bound up with "lackadaisical", which started out as the cry "alack-a-day!" = "shame or reproach to the day!" (that it should have brought this upon me), but which by the eighteenth century had turned into "lackadaisy".
