English translation:It's a nonsense phrase
Explanation:
The phrase you give is basically nonsensical. "ey" is not a German word as such, but more of a filler word (not unlike "like" in Valley speak)

hier - here
gesagt - said (past perfect of sagen, to say)
voll - full

"ey" and "voll" would seem to point to teen lingo, but the phrase as a whole does not make any sense.

hey man


Explanation:
"ey" - you can compare that German epxression to the English hey, man.
But without any context that sentence doesn't make any sense.

Hope I could help :-)

hey, as I said (here)


Explanation:
The German "ey" is a colloquial phrase similar to the English "hey" (as in "hey, you" or "hey, girl/man").

"Voll" typically is used in slang to emphasize the word following it; "voll gut" for example would mean "very good", "excellent".

Without any context the above answer can only be an approximation; overall this type of lingo hints at [more likely] either teenager slang or [less likely] an extremely "blue collar" context.
