Turkish term or phrase: vursana
hedefi vursana,
zir deli,
yillar yili
Shehnaz
English translation:just go for it
Explanation:
This would seem to carry quite clear sexual conotations, something like

Just go for the target, you madman below the waist line, you year of years.

I am curious about the source here, because the word 'zir' is an archaic Persian loan word for 'lower part'. The expression 'belden aşağı' in Turkish ('below the waist') is often used with sexual connotations, and I am assuming that 'zir' is used in the same way - here 'madman below the waist line' would mean someone who exhibits sexual prowess.
