... please


Explanation:
just as a hypothesis, I guess that this sentence may actually spell as "y s'il vous plaît", then it could be just a part of a phrase like "go there please":

"Allez-y s'il-vous-plaît" http://perso.cybercable.fr/maxsnet/arthur/index.html

"Alors allez-y, s'il vous plaît" http://www.parl.gc.ca/InfoComDoc/36/1/AGRI/Meetings/Evidence...

"jetez y, s'il-Vous-plaît, un oeil bienveillant" http://www.chez.com/bartoot/main.html
