Hello! I would like to understand this sentence from the children's song "Du er du og du duer". Mainly the word "Duer". What does it mean?

"du" as a verb is something that works or what anyone is good for. So here it could be translated to: You are you and you work/you are good. A cute little wordplay on "du" as pronoun and "du" as verb.
