yes b'y!


Recommended Posts

B'ye or b'y is short for boy. b'yes is like boys. So if someone refers to the b'yes its the boys but really its just people in general, like "guys" and b'ye can be used with either a girl or a boy.


It also has other meanings in different phases, so like "yes b'ye" is like an expression of disbelief, like "yeah right"

or "whatta-ya-at-b'ye" is "what are you doing?"
