A colloquial contraction of "yes sir," used to emphasize what one just said, rather than being addressed to anyone in particular. Sometimes written as "yes sirree." Ouch, that is one nasty looking cut you've got there, yessirree! Yes sirree, this new lawnmower will take care of that grass in half the time it used to take!
Also, no sirree. Certainly not. This emphatic denial is used without regard to the gender of the person addressed. For example, No sir, I'm not taking her up on that, or Live here? No sirree. [Mid-1800s]
