Why Does Saying “Flip Flop” Feels More Correct Than “Flop Flip”?

There are many words that we use in our daily language that seem alright when spoken in a particular way, but somewhat weird when said in the 'wrong' order. There are many examples of this, such as when we say that a watch “tick tocks” instead of “tock ticks”. Similarly, “flip flop” sounds right, but “flop flip” sounds wrong for some inexplicable reason. “Ping pong”, “dilly dally” and “hip hop” are a few other common examples. Even the name of the popular fictional beast is “King Kong”, rather than “Kong King”.
