antatte, mattaku baka na onna-no-ko ne!

The above translation of "you silly girl" is spoken, colloquial Japanese, and is just one of many possibilities.
Hope this is good for you! Hal and Yasue Slovic for J.E.T. (Japanese/English Translations)

Shouga-nai ko dana!

"Shouga-nai ko dana" literally means
that the girl (ko) is hopeless, but
it conveys humorous tone.

Full sentence depends on who is saying it. The first would be used by a woman... the second my a man. Hope it helps. Of course, the translation depends entirely on the context in which it is used.

Hope this helps.
