go on with your girlfriends, I don't care, cheers !


Explanation:
I am wonderring if this is really technical !

Door gaan = to continue, to go on.

maar = but, only, is very difficult to translate in this context. It means here that the person saying that is very disapointed and even pissed off.
I tried to give it back with "I don't care". You could also use an interrogative form: "why don't you go..." ; Anyway this is spoken language, and the way you say it makes the real meaning.

Daag = literally bye-bye or bye. Here it's almost go to Hell. I was more moderate saying "cheers". Same remark as before.

Just go off with your lady friends, bye.


Explanation:
I agree with the last answer, It sounds like the end of an argument, a parting sarcastic remark from an enbittered loved one, possibly on the telephone.
