Dear orange tarek,

welcome to this topic! Thanks for your interests.

Hurly-burly means a very noisy and busy activity or situation. An example sentence: He enjoys the hurly-burly of political debate.

Hurdy-gurdy is a small musical instrument that is played by turning a handle.

If you want to see how does Hurdy-gurdy look, you can go through the following link:
