Right. It means "Shio mi ga Djuro".

Hope that helps.

See you, Asher & Alla tonight.

I think it's a British word for "baby carriage." It may have some kind of slang meaning in patois that I'm not aware of, though . . .
What about the half that's never been told?

King,

in newer dancehall terms I would say it's an imitation of a gunshot sound.

I have always found it best to stick to my native tounge to avoid embarrassing myself. I never understood some peoples need to do a Zelig.
